On the heels of a successful inaugural event last year that attracted more than 1,000 people to Town Square Park in downtown Federal Way, Flavor of Federal Way officials are anticipating another strong turnout for this year’s event.
The festival, scheduled for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 10 at Town Square Park, will come alive with the sights and sounds of one of the most diverse populations in the region, celebrating the cultures and communities that make the city of Federal Way a vibrant place to live, work and play.
