LONG BEACH, Wash. - If the beautiful shoreline, nature trails, art galleries and shops weren't enough to entice you to visit Long Beach this summer, the city's annual SummerFest promises free entertainment and fun for the entire family every weekend, including horse-drawn wagon rides, children's face painting, music and more.

This weekend, June 18 and 19, features performances by Mother Goose in Fish Alley, across from the Cottage Bakery, poetry in the Gazebo, face painting at the Big Stage entrance and wagon rides that board at the Gazebo.

Saturday and Sunday, June 25 and 26 is Fire Safety Weekend, where the first 100 kids in line at the Big Stage entrace will receive coloring books, crayons, hats and stickers from Smokey Bear. Greg Parke provides music in the Gazebo, and visitors can enjoy face painting and wagon rides, all free.

Upcoming highlights include the 133rd Washington State Army National Guard Band performing Saturday, July 2, and the Eerie 8's Car Show July 9 and 10. SummerFest continues through Labor Day Weekend.
