    Drummers from the Fabric of Life Drum Circle perform in 2010 on the Family Stage at the Edmonds Waterfront Festival.

This year's Edmonds Waterfront Festival is sure to be fun for everyone.
There's a climbing wall, giant slide and lots of inflatable rides, along with pony rides. There's art projects for kids, face painting and a paintball gallery.
Entertainment is just about everywhere -- at least on two stages.
Family entertainment includes Conga Joy's African and Afro-Caribbean music; rocking blues from Kelly & The Band; martial arts from Master Cho; a reptile show; jugglers; and the Westgate Children's Choir.
There's also adult music at night in the beer garden.
While you are at the festival, you might also want to get your fish on.
The annual open house for the Edmonds Laebugtens Salmon Chapter Trout Unlimited is occurring at the same time as the waterfront festival. To celebrate, fishermen young and old can be shuttled to Willow Creek Fish Hatchery from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday to catch a trout.
This is a family friendly event and the caught fish will be cleaned for you. There are also tours of the hatchery, free for kids 12 and under, with free coffee, popcorn, juice and cookies.
If you are done fishing and looking to take a break from the festivities, you can stroll the Edmonds Marina and view more than 12 classic wooden yachts, all part of the Classic Yacht Rendezvous. Viewing is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and some boats can also be boarded. Guests are asked to wear soft-soled shoes.
A free shuttle bus will run during festival hours each day from the Methodist Church, 828 Caspers St., Edmonds, to the festival. The shuttle will stop at three locations in downtown Edmonds. Free parking is available at the Methodist Church.
The 25th annual Edmonds Rotary Waterfront Festival runs from 3 to 10 p.m. today, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday at the Port of Edmonds Marina, 420 Admiral Way, Edmonds.
Admission is $3 general; free for children 12 and younger.
