The Key Peninsula Livable Community Fair is back this year with more participants and more entertainment.

Last year’s hit performers, Rhythm-n-Shoes Cloggers, will return along with the Key Peninsula Middle School Jazz Band, the Evergreen Elementary Blues Kids, Quartet Musette with Lorraine Hart and Razzmatazz (Peninsula High School’s vocal ensemble). Special attractions will include Rhubarb the Reindeer (Tacoma Rainiers’ Mascot), local firefighters with a fire truck, sheriff’s deputies and a patrol vehicle, canine demonstrations, flying disc dogs demonstration, reptiles, craft
activities, a fish pond and a historical display.

With the theme of “Showcasing people, agencies and organizations making the Key Peninsula more livable,” the May 8 event is organized by Safe Streets and the Key Peninsula Civic Center Association with the help of other sponsors, such as Pierce County, St. Joseph Medical Center, Pierce Transit, Ravensara Inc., and Banner Expression. More than 45 organizations and agencies will share resources that are available for Key Pen residents, as well as information on how to become involved in the local community, news, events, and other opportunities.

The event will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The address is 17010 South Vaughn Road.
