Join us on Sunday, August 22, 2010 from noon to 5pm for the 2nd annual Pirates & Pipsqueaks, an old fashioned carnival with old fashioned prices for kids of all ages! This fun event benefits services for homeless kids staying at Solid Ground’s Broadview Shelter.

Enjoy a lovely summer afternoon with the Seafair Pirates, the Seattle Derby Brats, carnival games and live music! The festivities will take place in the Solid Ground Headquarters Building parking lot at 1501 N 45th St, Seattle, WA 98103 in Seattle’s Wallingford neighborhood.
 
Vintage carnival games will include Dunk the Pirate, a Pirate Bounce House, Walk the Plank, Cupcake Walk, Pirate Wiffle Ball, Ducks in the Pond, Balloon Darts, Bottle Ring Toss, and lots more.
 
Kids can enter the Pirate Costume Contest and pose for photos with the Seafair Pirates. The Seattle Derby Brats will perform roller skating demos! See a real pirate ship, win fabulous prizes, enjoy live music, face painting, food and fun!
 
This exciting community event is sponsored by Not A Number Cards & Gifts, the Seafair Pirates, Seattle’s Child, Starbucks, Trophy Cupcakes, the Wallingford Chamber of Commerce, and the Wallingford Community Council. All proceeds will benefit services for homeless children at Broadview Shelter & Transitional Housing, a program of Solid Ground.
