Our indoor and outdoor celebration will feature hands-on crafts, demonstrations, and activities—including a virtual-reality lab where you can “travel” to space and be on the moon; and a bungee-jumping station where you, too, can experience weightlessness, like real astronauts. 

Food trucks will include: BaguettaboutitFuzzy's EmpanadasKona IceMoonRunners, and STUFT, and on Bicentennial Plaza, there will be a beer garden, featuring Lynnwood Brewing Concern. CBS 17 is the official media sponsor of the One Giant Leap Festival.
