If you have children, plan to visit the Field of Fun this year at Salmon Days.

The playground of free and exciting activities is located on Veterans’ Memorial Field, behind the Issaquah Police Department and next to the Foods of the World. Catered toward the youngest festivalgoers, the Field of Fun has safe, fun, free and fishy activities for all ages.

For children who love to leap and tumble, try the Incredible Inflatables. Jump, climb and bounce around in these brightly colored, inflatable play toys. For more roly-poly fun, check out the giant hamster balls. Climb inside these giant inflatable balls and see what if feels like to be a hamster.

Who says there has to be snow for skis and snowboards? See extreme winter athletes demonstrate thrilling tricks on a 40-foot ramp. After the hair-raising exhibits, they’ll join the audience on spring-free trampolines to show how to have fun safely.

Or head to the police station for a Salmon Days tradition. Ohfishally spawnsored by Children’s Hospital and Regional Medical Center, fish prints will have you up to your elbows in brightly-colored paint and fish — rubber fish, that is. The final product is a unique, imprinted piece of art you can take home.

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No, it’s the Super Hero Squad. Stop by for game demonstrations, Beta signup and receive a free mask of your favorite Marvel hero, ohfishally spawnsored by The Amazing Society.

This year’s Kids Stage has something for family members of all ages. Packed with favorite regional children’s performers, audiences will remain captivated by exciting stories, thrilling magic, intriguing reptiles and more.

Join Rick Hartman, of the Toy Workshop, and learn how to turn everyday household items into fun folk toys. Travel through four to five stations, sawing, hammering, fastening and decorating your very own toy that can be taken home and enjoyed. This activity is free thanks to Bank of America, the ohfishal activity spawnsor.

What’s the best way to get around Salmon Days? Hop on the mini trains, ohfishally spawnsored by Port Blakely Communities.

The 2010 Issaquah Salmon Days Festival is presented by the Issaquah Chamber of Commerce and is ohfishally spawnsored by Virginia Mason Medical Center.
