Mount Baker’s Day in the Park tradition is one that can be traced back to the very beginning of the Clubhouse and the birth of the Mount Baker neighborhood — neighbors have gathered annually for a picnic in Mount Baker Park since 1909! In 1971 the Clubhouse expanded on the tradition and hosted the first annual Day in the Park festival. That first festival featured field day competitions, prizes were given for craziest hat design and a $1 entry got you ice cream, pop and “better-than-average” draft beer. And, like today, the day began with a children’s parade. 

We’ll see you there!!
