Kids will "vote" in parade and learning event on Nov. 1 at Puget Ridge Edible Park
If you want to educate children about the importance of voting you might want to bring the kiddos to a kid's parade to a local ballot box being offered in West Seattle Nov.1.
Following a harvest festival and crafts party where kids will vote on the future of their kids' world within our neighborhood, we will be having a kids' parade to our local ballot box at South Seattle College.
It will be held at Puget Ridge Edible Park, 5265 18th Ave. S.W. West Seattle on Sunday November 1st. The Kids' parade to the ballot box starts at 1 pm.
The organizers say that "This event is our effort to indoctrinate children into the Democratic process. Giving them some voice in real decision making that will affect a child's view of their own neighborhood. In replacement of the traditional Halloween activities that will be curtailed due to Covid-19 we are offering a harvest festival and crafts party at Puget Ridge Edible Park. From 11 am to 1 pm where the children can do crafts and activities as well as vote for future activities and events at their local edible park. At 1 pm they will parade a short walk to the ballot box at South Seattle College to celebrate participation in democracy and take photos. A separate and smaller ballot box will be placed beside the official box.
It's worth noting that the event will employ wide separation and required mask wearing to comply with Covid-19 CDC and state guidelines. Any groups formed will be separated within their group and far away from any other group.
