FREE FAMILY FUN INSIDE AND OUT!
Thanks to the generosity of Swedish Hospital ALL the outdoor carnival fun will be FREE this year! What a great way to spend the day with family and friends. This historic, family-friendly festival will feature a healthy living/active lifestyle theme and will feature lots of FREE carnival activities and rides for all ages. Planned activities include a giant inflatable obstacle course, elevated-ropes course, bungee-trampolines, pony rides, rock climbing wall and much, much more!
Enjoy live entertainment provided by DJ BluE and JSL Entertainment! Local restaurants will provide food concessions for purchase including SIP, Agave, Zeek’s Pizza and Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream. Visit over 50 booths representing sports, fitness and nutrition experts, local businesses, and local nonprofit agencies. Many of the booths will offer FREE carnival game and craft fun, FREE samples, and FREE answers to your fitness and sports related questions.
Don’t miss the FREE fun inside the hospital! Kids can go “Stamping Around Swedish!” The first 2,000 kids who collect passport stamps from around the hospital can redeem their passport card for a FREE 12” Build-A-Bear teddy bear! Passports can be picked up at the Swedish Pediatric Specialty Clinic located on the 5th floor of the new hospital. Once all 12 passport locations have been visited and stamped the passport can be exchanged at Lily and Pearl, the new hospital gift shop for the Swedish Teddy Bear (limit, first 2,000 kids)!
For even more FREE fun kids can also bring their favorite teddy bear, doll or toy to the “Teddy Bear Clinic” in the emergency department for a check- up. Take the kids to the 2nd floor for a wacky portrait drawn by the caricature artist and then head up to the 3rd floor for a fun photo-op and keepsake frame. Have you ever had a cast? On the fourth floor kids can have their finger casted (removable, of course!).
Inspire your young future doctors, nurses, and scientists with tours of the Surgery Department (including robotic surgery!), Cancer Center, Imaging Center and all of the new clinics and offices that specialize in primary care, OB/GYN, orthopedics, cardiology, neurology, pediatrics, spine, pain, allergy, gastroenterology, outpatient rehabilitation and more! Meet the doctors, ask questions, and even make your next appointment right on the spot!
