Ticket required: $6.22 including fees
All ages: children too young to participate do not need a ticket (but we don't promise that all guarantee will be G-rated)

SPECIAL THIS TIME: HARRY POTTER-THEMED COSTUME CONTEST
No, not for you adults -- for your kids and dogs!
Here's how it works: 
Kids compete during the early edition, dogs compete during the late edition (when the kids are probably in bed). 
If you are old enough to attend unaccompanied by a parent, you are not a kid. Dog means dog.
You do not have to dress like Harry Potter himself, just like something from the series. 
The first place winner will be determined by the audience and wins a special prize!

City Fruit Harvest Kick Off

Background: if you aren’t familiar with City Fruit, we are working to put Seattle's incredible fruit tree canopy to its best and fullest use. We work in 16 public orchards and hundreds of backyards across this city. Each year, we harvest tens of thousands of pounds of fruit (cherries, figs, plums, apples, pears, and more!), which we distribute to local food banks and community partners. We coordinate and serve thousands of tree owners, donors & members, volunteers, low-income youth and their families. And we also manage almost 100 partnerships with local businesses, food banks, community organizations, and local government.

The Event: The Harvest season is our biggest program of the year - it generally runs from June-October. This year, we'd love to celebrate the start of that work with a Harvest Kick-Off Party at three local breweries to offer a community-based celebration with our supporters across the city. The event is on June 9th, 2-4pm.
