Sunday Festivities Remember, Vashon Hwy will be closed from 10am until 5pm. For visitors wanting to avoid the festival traffic, there will be a Shuttle bus running from the north end ferry terminal approximately every 30 minutes between 9am to 6pm Sunday for those who wish to park at the parking lots and save the challenge of trying to find a parking spot close enough to the festival. The cost is $2 each way. Just park your car in one of the terminal lots and catch a shuttle at the end of the dock.

The drop off point will be Ober Park. There will also be a shuttle running from the south end terminal. Shuttles will meet arriving ferry boats and drop visitors at the Vashon Senior Center. The last shuttle to the terminals will be at 5:30pm for the north and south ends and will leave from their designated locations.

The Sportsmen’s Club all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast takes place in the IGA parking lot right across from the post office from 8am till noon. You get pancakes with strawberries, sausage, orange juice, coffee and milk, with proceeds benefitting the Sportsmen’s Club’s charitable fund.

Vendor booths along Vashon Highway will be open to sell food and fun items of every variety beginning at 10am.

At 11:45am, it’s the Classic Car Parade along Vashon Highway, with some of the rarest and most unique collector cars, hot rods, classic trucks and even project cars.
