Seafair may be wrapping up in a couple of weeks, but the final and most fun Seafair event is right around the corner. The Othello Park Festival is held on August 14 from noon to 6:00pm at the neighborhood of Othello, located on southeast Seattle’s LINK light rail line. This Southeast Seattle’s diverse cultural communities, including East African, Asian, Filipino, Fijian, African-American and other immigrant communities, will gather in Othello Park to show their solidarity as one international community. A dance floor laid out in front of the stage invites everyone to join in the fun of learning steps and rhythms of many cultural dances. Women’s Steel Pan Project, Global Heat, and Clava Kubana and many more are this year’s featured guest performers this year.
At the event, there will be a variety of vendor, craft, and community information booths. Food choices include Asian, Jamaican, Ethiopian and Indian cuisines. Besides dancing, features of special interest to children of all ages include art creation stations, Othello Park’s playground and giant hillside slide, bouncy houses, a petting zoo with a variety of animals including the Festival trademark, a camel.
