EDMONDS -- A Taste of Edmonds, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, is one of the state's biggest three-day festivals and it gets that honor by offering four stages of entertainment, a variety of arts and crafts and food, a beer and wine garden and enough children's activities to please the fussiest toddler.
There are pony rides, a huge rock wall to climb, bouncy inflatables, free face painting, clowns making animal balloon shapes and the Woodland Park Zoo exhibit.
On the Kids Stage, popular acts include Reptile Isle, Kids Karaoke, the "kindie" rock band The Not Its, a martial arts exhibition and juggling.
Older kids and adults might appreciate and want to get their "spy on" watching Mark Soop do his impeccable imitation of Austin Powers.
Main stage headliners this year include 2007 "American Idol" runner-up Blake Lewis, The Beatles tribute band British Export, and the Seattle-based group Heart By Heart.
New this year, A Taste is offering free admission until 3 p.m. Friday only.
There's also a free shuttle from Edmonds-Woodway High School, 7600 212th St. SW, Edmonds, every 15 minutes beginning at 11 a.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
A Taste of Edmonds runs from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday at the Civic Center Playfield, 310 Sixth Ave. N, Edmonds.
