Seattle, WA – Everyone that attends the 17th Fremont Summer Solstice Parade and 34th Fremont Fair June 18/19 with a camera, picture cell phone, camcorder or digital voice recorder is eligible to enter their multimedia points-of-view into an online contest at the public Yahoo Group FreFair

Picture cell phone users can e-mail their photos and short video clips directly from the Fremont streets within moments of capturing the scene from their prospective at: frefair@yahoogroups.com

“I created this group back in 2001,” states JOlmsted, the online digital contest organizer. “For a single selfish reason – I wanted to see as many points-of-view from this amazing annual art experience. There are oodles of online digital photos and blog accounts that the mega search engines just do not pick up. This community will provide an easy, free, non-restricted site for people to see other view points and also celebrate individual’s creative use of digital recording mediums. I enjoy experiencing the world through the eye-of-the-artist.”

Fremont Parade

The Fremont Arts Council presents the largest walking PUBLIC art event in Seattle for the individuals to gather and create a Solstice celebration dedicated to building community through art. The canvas stretches from professional artists, and performers to community groups, schools and individuals creating beautiful, funny, satirical and often unexpected objects and performances. http://www.fremontartscouncil.org/

Fremont Fair

Just about everyone in Fremont has helped or participated in the Fremont Fair in one way or another - it is truly a grass-roots community celebration and a product of all we know and love about the spirit of Fremont.

The Fremont Public Association (FPA) took over stewardship of the fair a few years after it's inception. FPA is also the beneficiary of revenue generated by the fair. During the first few years of FPA producing the fair, people were asked to bring canned food to help restart the Fremont Food Bank, which was relocating from the basement of the Fremont Baptist Church, or aluminum cans, to help launch the FPA's curb-side recycling efforts.

Many years later, FPA has grown to one of the largest human service agencies in the city, with almost 30 programs serving low-income individuals and families throughout Seattle, King County and beyond. http://http://www.fremontpublic.org/.
