The North Renton Picnic rocked - again

Sorry for the lame "pet" ad - just click on the "X" right away, and that pesty little thing with vamoose!

Join the Renton Picnic today

Feel like a little picnicking and  meetin' the neighbors and that sort of thing? Join the North Renton Neighborhood Association and my wee self this evening between the hours of 5:30 - 7:30 pm at Jones Park on Wells Street for some free hot dogs and convivial surroundings. We won't frown at a little potluck activity from your kitchen, if so inclined. Norma is said to be collecting recipes of any dish that you happen to bring. So come along and share - whether it be just you, or you and a dish or two. All comers welcome.

My favorite part of the evening is seeing people from all walks of the City of Renton's many departments out cooking up dinner at the grill.Check us out last year.

While you are at it, check out the newly formated North Renton Neighborhood Association website, thanks to a local figure known to many as Renton Ben.

Hey! It's a Parade

Renton River Days Parade - an event I look forward to each year. Fry Bread purchased each year in front of the Eagles Club and a chair to bask on the sidelines while the kids (and adults!) hope to score a candy or two thrown their way. This is a slice of Americana and it is heavenly.

Light on text? Yep - off to play with my niece at the last day of the Renton River Days at Liberty Park. Hope to see ya'll there.

Here a duck, there a quack

As of today, all of the Renton rubber ducks, whose locations have been being mysteriously hinted at in the Renton Reporter since the end of June, have come to roost at Liberty Park. Man, my Mom had a great time tracking down every last one of those cleverly outfitted ducks in the hope of being the winner this weekend at Renton River Days.

Since I have been such a dilatory blogger as of late, here is a look back at some of these cute little yellow duckies in their recent environments. Pongi Bonsi at The Landing featured here.

Tricked out by Tor, tattoo artiste of Downtown Renton, this guy was seen at Happy Delusions.

Cute little reporter duckie found at Common Ground Coffee and Cupcakes- he had, by far, the yummiest hang out.

Okay - so this one needs no explanations from me. Dude is hella cute, right?

Got some of your Duck Hunt bingo sheet filled out? Head over to Liberty Park and put your sheet with your name attached in for a drawing. Maybe this is your ducky, I mean, Lucky Day!
