    A Look Back.

Fremont Festival.

Ever since we moved to Seattle and told people that we would be moving to the Fremont neighborhood, we have been hearing about the Fremont Solstice weekend.  A big celebration of creativity and the arts, my neighborhood turned into a huge whacky parade and festival for two days straight.

I was shopping for baby goods most of Saturday (!), but I did make it to the festival Sunday afternoon, and I’m so glad I made time to check it out before it ended.

There was delicious free Tully’s coffee!  Perfect for a slightly cool afternoon.

IMG_0310 (427x640)

And tons of fun for families and kids.  Cotton candy!

And some sort of super slide – couldn’t convince Casey to give it a try…

IMG_0313 (427x640)

Everything in Seattle is green and eco-friendly.  Even street fairs!

IMG_0312 (640x427)

Casey and Sarah and I walked up and down every row, checking out the vendors and the crazy crowds.

IMG_0315 (640x427)

Lots of vegan and vegetarian representation there too!

IMG_0319 (640x427)

Hula hooping…

IMG_0320 (640x427)

The Library Fairy…

IMG_0322 (427x640)

Hair of every color…

IMG_0324 (426x640)

And a marching band!

IMG_0325 (640x427)

Best part of the afternoon…

IMG_0329 (640x426)

IMG_0330 (640x427)

IMG_0331 (640x427)

And finally, the FOOD!  Considering this was a street fair I was amazed at the number of vegetarian options available…

IMG_0333 (640x387)

IMG_0334 (640x421)

All three of us ended up choosing vegetarian gyros.  Yum.

IMG_0339 (640x427)

Casey also got an extra “falafel on a stick” for us to share.

IMG_0340 (640x427)

Delicious gyros enjoyed waterside.

And giant waffle cones of soft serve ice cream to finish out our Fremont Fair experience.

IMG_0345 (640x426)

It was fun to have such a big Seattle event right here in our neighborhood!  Although we live pretty close to the main commercial area here, and I’m happy to return to some peace and quiet now that the floats have all paraded past and the trucks have packed up.  Until next year!

It all looks really fun, but the best looking part was the waffle cones of soft serve – yum! Nothing says summer like soft serve ice cream :)

Hey Emily!
You look gorgeous! Quick question…are you drinking coffee again? I thought you had mentioned that you gave it up?


Emily Malone Reply:

Sorry for the late answer!! I’ve been drinking decaf coffee blends on chilly mornings. :)

Nice William and Mary hoodie Sarah!!

At the Richmond Veg fest this past weekend they had VEGAN funnel cakes! Holla!

I love your blog, and the fact that you moved to Seattle!! (my hometown :) I lived in Fremont for 2 years and you absolutely MUST try Paseo’s- a Cuban sandwich joint on Fremont Ave. Totally unmarked hole in the wall, but you can’t miss the CRAZY long lines outside and the aroma! Anyway, they have an incredible tofu sandwich that nearly matches the pulled pork :) my old vegetarian roommate was just as hooked on that place as I was. Anyway, looks like the festival was fun this year!!! Best of luck with the rest of the pregnancy!!

those gyros look awesome! they’re one of my favorite takeout foods, so i’d love to try a veggie version.
glad y’all had fun! :)

I used to live in Seattle and am back visiting – I tried a new restaurant that you may have already been to, but just incase, I can’t recommend Portage Bay in Ballard highly enough! They have an entire “toppings bar” with TONS of fresh fruit, nuts and even cookies to top your oats, pancakes, etc. Just thought I’d let you know!

I love Portage Bay!! :)

Thanks , I’ve recently been looking for information about this subject for ages and yours
is the best I’ve discovered so far. However, what in regards
to the bottom line? Are you positive about the supply?
