Nancy with pinwheels_croppedWindermere Mercer Island brokers will also be at “The Pirates Return” Grand Parade that will wind through Town Center on Saturday July 11th, 10 am. They will be passing out festive red, white and blue pinwheels to parade attendees. To the left, broker Nancy LaVallee is showcasing the pinwheels we’ll be handing out – they are a nice size and spin like crazy in a breeze. Please note that the Obliteride Kids Ride sponsored by Fred Hutchinson is before the parade, starting at 9 am, and travels the same route. Plan accordingly to secure your favorite spot for the parade.

Keep on your toes – pirate sword fights are supposed to break out about every 30 minutes over both days of Summer Celebration. Word has it that the action will be by the skate park at Mercerdale Park. pirate tatoo
