Every December we hold the annual KNA Holiday Bonfire to Coulon Park’s north picnic shelter. Join us this year on December 9, 2023, for this years event! We will provide hot cocoa, cider, s’mores, and fun holiday music. This is a free event sponsored by the Kennydale Neighborhood Association.
Here is a write-up of the event from 2021 from Leah Battin, former KNA Board Member: This year it was held on a Thursday to take advantage of the Renton School District’s late start Friday. We had a great turnout with people of all ages joining us for hot cocoa, cider, s’mores, and fun holiday music. This is a free event sponsored by our neighborhood association. Here’s what our neighbors are saying:
“My favorite part of the bonfire was the marshmallows!” Drake, a two-year Kennydale resident who is currently attending pre-school.
“We look forward to the KNA bonfire every year. This year was an especially fun time with the kids having a blast making s’mores, drinking yummy caramel hot chocolate, and running around with friends. It’s also fun for the adults to hang out and catch up with friends and meet new neighbors.” Kimberly, Kennydale resident for over 40 years.
“This is such a fun event to organize! Our family came to the bonfire for the first time in 2009, and we’ve been meeting friends here every year since. It’s a great tradition and it was so much fun getting to plan this year. We added a few new fun touches (caramel syrup, whip cream, and sprinkles!) while being mindful of everyone’s safety.”
Leah, 2021 Kennydale Board Member, and Resident for 17 years
