Families take note: Olympia Arts Walk is upping its kids’ stuff quotient

The Olympian

At Olympia’s 58th Arts Walk, the arts are just the start.

The city is aiming to add a family festival feeling to the event, traditionally a mix of gallery walk, performance festival and block party.

The Department of Parks, Arts & Recreation, which organizes the happening that draws thousands of people downtown to see and be seen, is expanding its activities for children and families.

“The vision is to create an arts and recreation space that will be a draw for youth and families,” said event organizer Angel Nava. “I’m so excited.”

The pop-up arts and recreation center, which will be along Fifth Avenue between Washington Street and Capitol Way, will be open from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday and from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday.
