My family loves the Annual Seahawks Family Football Fest! We’ve been going since I was pregnant with Owen and we always are impressed with how well-run the event is. This year’s tickets sold out quickly and they were expecting the biggest crowd to date. They seem to add new elements and continually improve each year. This year was no exception.
Instructional sign at the Delta Dental photo booth
New this year was the Delta Dental photo booth. They had a Seahawks staff member taking photos with personal cell phones in front of the Superbowl display. All I had to do was post my photo to Instagram with the hashtag #HawkSmiles and it was printed minutes later and a staff member taped it to the frame. Pretty fun keepsake for our family!

Out on the field was where all the athletic activities took place. Last year, our toddler Owen was only 18 months and while he enjoyed running around on the turf, he wasn’t able to really participate in the activities. This year, at 2.5 years old, he was the perfect age to test out some of the areas! The staff members were so patient and experienced when it came to toddlers and preschoolers, ensuring that fun was had by all.

I was really surprised how interested Owen was in all the activities. He seemed a bit nervous at first, but after watching the kids in front of us in line, he took off! He even said “more!” and emphasized it by signing it as well! We did several activities twice because he was having so much fun!
Photo Op at the 2016 Seahawks Family Football Fest
We ended the event by going back inside and hitting up one last photo op. I really appreciate that they offer plenty of activities so people can pick and choose the right ones for their family. Other activities offered that we didn’t get a chance to experience include player autographs, photos with the Sea Gals, face painting, balloon artists, caricaturists, and the bouncy houses.
