The Everett Aquasox are holding their annual family festival this weekend.

One of our sponsors, McClain Insurance, passed along this update on the big Aqusasox Family Festival Saturday and Sunday. If you’ve got kids or grandkids this should be a great event and it looks like the weather will cooperate.

For the third year, the AquaSox are hosting their popular Family Festival at Memorial Stadium on Saturday and Sunday, July 26 – 27. Visit dozens of local vendors’ booths, participate in family fun activities, and sign up for prizes and raffles!

McClain Insurance Services is a proud signature sponsor of the AquaSox Family Fest.

“We had a lot of fun at last year’s Family Festival, and I’m thrilled that the AquaSox are providing this opportunity to bring families together. I have fond memories of summer nights spent at the ballpark with my own family and friends, back when the AquaSox were still known as the Everett Giants. It brings me joy that we are able to help others make similar memories in this way,” says Claudia McClain, the owner of McClain Insurance Services.

On Sunday, the PEMCO WALLY van will provide free souvenir photo lanyards commemorating their trip to the ballpark.

Gates open at 5:30pm on Saturday and 3:00pm on Sunday. After enjoying the festival, end the day with a ballgame against the Boise Hawks (Saturday, 7:05pm) or the Tri-City Dust Devils (Sunday, 4:05pm).

While you’re at the game and munching peanuts, be sure to pick up one of the McClain-sponsored peanut shell collection bags. Cracking peanut shells into a bag not only keeps the ballpark cleaner, but it also helps the growing number of fans with peanut allergies by keeping shells and dust a little more contained.

Everett Silvertips street hockey

The tournament will be held Saturday at Clark Park.

It’s been gone for 2 years but this Saturday street hockey returns to downtown Everett. Here are all the details courtesy of the Everett Silvertips…

The Silvertips Street Hockey Tournament returns to downtown Everett after a two-year hiatus this Saturday!
Join us at Clark Park (located 1/2 mile north of Comcast Arena at 2400 Lombard Avenue) starting at 10:00 am for a great day of ball hockey, music, food and lots of fun for kids and adults alike!

Whether you’re a player, parent or a fan coming to watch, Clark Park will have plenty of activity during the Silvertips Street Hockey Tournament.  Games are taking place on Clark Park’s enclosed tennis courts, making for convenient spectator viewing as multiple games occur simultaneously throughout the day.  Some bleacher seating is available outside the courts, but spectators are also welcome to bring along portable folding chairs.

Food will be available for purchase on-site at the park, including hamburgers, hot dogs and other picnic food & drinks through the Everett Youth Hockey Booster Club’s “Kickoff Cookout”, which helps raise money to support youth hockey players and their families.  An ice cream vendor will also be on hand to help you cool off during a warm summer day, plus we’ll have special discounted items on sale from the Silvertips Team Store (cash only please) and music will be playing throughout the day!

Registration opens at 9:00 am and the first games start at 10:00 am.  Teams MUST be registered at least 30 minutes prior to their first game, with ALL participants required to submit a waiver prior to competing.  (Please note that the 10U and Adult Recreation divisions do not begin play until the afternoon.)  Games will start promptly to help keep the tournament on-schedule, so please have your team ready at the appointed game time!  The last game of the day is scheduled to begin at 5:00 pm.

CLICK HERE For the tournament schedule.

The tournament is organized into three youth divisions (14U, 12U and 10U) and two adult divisions (competitive and recreational).  Each team is guaranteed at least three round-robin games, with those results being used to seed teams in a single-elimination playoff.  Playoff brackets vary by division, so be sure to look for your division’s bracket and track the standings to find out if your team has qualified for the playoffs.

One referee and an official scorekeeper will monitor each game.  Players should bring both dark and white t-shirts to help distinguish between teams that may wear similar colors.  Helmets and eye protection are required for all youth division players and recommended for adult players.  Goalie equipment must be approved before your first game.  Other protective gear, such as gloves, shin guards, mouth guards, etc. is recommended but not required.

Team captains should submit a final team roster to the Silvertips by Thursday at 5:00 pm.  Games will continue rain or shine (except in the case of extreme weather conditions).

CLICK HERE for complete tournament rules.  All players are expected to read and understand these rules prior to the start of play on Saturday.  Feel free to seek clarification about the rules at registration or ask a referee prior to the start of the game.

Brad’s stories span a lifetime of relatable emotions, be it the bitterness of loss, the deep longing of regret, the enduring hope of love, or the elation of joy.

  • July 9: Bradford Loomis Band, American folklore roots
  • July 16: Ayron Jones, soulful, electrifying blues

Battle of the Bands, will shred guitar during the summer concert series. Sam Anderson of Hey Marseilles will present his new solo project Arkomo – making its Everett debut.
