This year’s DennyFest was held after a rainy morning and in the wake of a Seahawks season opener that didn’t turn out the way the 12th Man wanted. But DennyFest was the perfect antidote to cloudy skies and deflated football fans. Several hundred Finn Hill residents came down to O.O. Denny Park and were treated to fantastic music, great burgers and hot dogs, a selection of pies and a tasty pot of chili. We had arts & crafts and a bouncy house for the kids, a massage tent for those who once were kids but are now feeling their age, and a dog...read more

The neighborhood kitchen enjoys...read more
