Join Seattle Parks and Recreation for its annual Big Day of Play from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 29, to showcase what the department and other community organizations are offering in the way of fun activities and healthy food.

This year, the event will take place at the Mount Baker Rowing and Sailing Center (3800 Lake Washington Blvd. S.) for the first time.

Big Day of Play is a way to get important information about health and wellness, discover unique opportunities to become active, enjoy healthy food and learn how recreation can change your life.

There will be sample activities from Seattle Parks and Recreation facilities and programs, paddling and boating events, a main stage celebration of cultural diversity with music and entertainment, creative play opportunities, youth demonstrations and healthy food vendors.
