May the slime be with you.
It's the most unusual Northwest Festival ever - a celebration of slugs. Guests can craft and wear their own tentacles to become a slug in preparation for the “Be a Slug” activity walk. Activities will include “How slow can you go?”, “Look out for slug predators!”, “How to Teach a Slug to Read” Story Walk, and other activities, too!
Why do we have this zaniest of festivals? Well, if you've ever hiked a Northwest forest, you'll know our slugs are among the biggest and best - especially the yellow-green banana slug. But they're also vital to our ecosystem, breaking down organic matter and returning it to the forest floor, where it becomes food for our beautiful plants and trees. Long live slugs!
