Kids Obstacle Challenge

Saturday, August 8

PCC is proud to be the fruit sponsor for the Subaru Kids Obstacle Challenge. We’ll provide healthy snacks to the adorably grubby participants in a kid-friendly mud run at Marymoor Park in Redmond.

Parents are welcome to participate with their kids and complete the slippery obstacles, too.

Rainier Valley heritage parade

Rainier Valley Heritage Parade

Saturday, August 15

The hydro races and Blue Angels have moved on by the time Seafair truly wraps up, when Columbia City hosts the final event: the Rainier Valley Heritage Parade. The PCC TasteMobile will hand out goodies during the parade; our newest store is in the heart of the neighborhood. Enjoy the parade, then at dusk, bring the family to Columbia Park for Cinema Under the Stars, which will show a family-friendly film on a giant screen.

Columbia City PCC is next to the park, in The Angeline building at Rainier Ave. S. and S. Edmunds St., so pop in for healthy movie snacks, Fair Trade chocolate treats and cool drinks.
