Please call the District Office at 206-842-2306 x118, the Bainbridge Island Aquatic Center 206-842-2302 or register online to reserve your spot!

Ride through the “haunted” pumpkin lined trails of Battle Point Park, where ghosts, zombies, mummies and even historic figures emerge from the shadows. Make crafts and play games before your hayride and warm up afterwards with hot cocoa and cookies. This is a not-too-scary, family-friendly event.

Volunteers needed! If you or your group is interested in helping with pumpkin carving, or being an actor or crew member please contact Lori Quick-Mejia at lorim@biparks.org or 206-842-2306 x129.

Each and every season for 29 years, Grammy Award-winning artists, Eric Tingstad and Nancy Rumbel have been home for the holidays creating a longstanding tradition with Northwest families. The perfect blend of Americana fingerstyle guitar, double reeds; and the ocarina emitting the nostalgic sound of penny whistles, lends magic to the season that fills the world with hope through the redeeming power of music. Festive and reverent, solemn and lively, the repertoire Eric and Nancy bring to audiences year after year are perennial favorites that have been passed down through the ages.

Well-known throughout the country and throughout the music industry, Tingstad & Rumbel won the Best New Age Grammy Award in 2003 in support of Acoustic Garden. Tingstad’s latest ensemble release, Southwest was nominated for a Grammy in 2007.
