Mark your calendars for this Saturday’s Rainbow Hop Pride Celebration

While other cities are canceling Drag Queen Story Time as “too controversial”, our neighborhood is embracing this Pride-centered tradition and celebrating diversity and family this Saturday from 10:30am – 1:30pm.

The 7th annual PhinneyWood Pride Rainbow Hop: a family-friendly LGTBQ celebration for everyone. Join the neighborhood to kick off Pride month with face painting, arts and crafts, and other exciting activities.

Participating businesses along the “Hop Route” will host activities that promote inclusiveness and fun. The event map with all the activities will be available in mid-May, both here and at participating locations.

Explore the neighborhood, have fun, and get your map stamped at each stop. Kids who collect 6 stamps or more on their map can exchange it for a ticket to the Woodland Park Zoo.

At: Seattle Public Library, Greenwood Branch, 8016 Greenwood Ave N.

Reading 1: 10:30-11:30 a.m.

Free Kids’ Concert by The Harmonica Pocket:

Starting at 1 pm in Morrow Lane, next to Verity Credit Union, the world famous  The Harmonica Pocket will perform for our great Rainbow Hop participants.

The Harmonica Pocket begins with the swinging songs of songwriter Keeth Monta Apgar. He delivers thick jazz chord progressions with storytelling lyrics wrapped up into thoughtful, mature songs.

The Harmonica Pocket songs are brought to life by a rotating musical gang of players and are as diverse as the musicians who play on them.
