Fraternity Snoqualmie, the nudist campground nestled in the Tiger Mountain forest, plans to celebrate the 35th Annual Nude Recreation Week — naturally — with a world-record attempt skinny dip.
Saturday marks the second year the campground has participated in a global attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest skinny dip.
Dare to bare all for the American Association for Nude Recreation-sponsored event at the park’s pools. Participants can sign up starting at 10 a.m. Saturday. The event starts at noon.
In order to adhere to the rules for the world record, all participants must be completely nude — no swim trunks allowed — during the skinny dip.
The weeklong celebration of nude recreation also includes the 19th annual Bare Buns Fun Run at 11 a.m. Sunday. The clothing-optional 5K race winds up the side of Tiger Mountain. The top three runners in all age divisions receive prizes.
Catch a shuttle bus from 8-10 a.m. at the Issaquah Transit Center, 1050 17th Ave. N.W., to Fraternity Snoqualmie before the race.
Find a complete list of Fraternity Snoqualmie Nude Recreation Week activities at the campground’s website. Call 392-NUDE (6833) for more information.
First time visitors to Fraternity Snoqualmie receive a free one-day membership; return visitors pay regular day fees of $15 per person. Children can attend if accompanied by their parents, at no additional fee. The campground requires photo identification for admittance.
