It’s that time again. The Fremont First Friday Artwalk is here once more and takes place this Friday, September 2nd.

Along with the usual artist showcases and events, there’s one special event worth taking note of. the Academy of Awesome Mobile Tour is making its Seattle stop in the parking lot at 35th & Phinney (also home to Fremont Outdoor Movies) from 6-9pm,

The Academy of Awesome Mobile Tour debuted on June 25, 2011 with a kick off party in Los Angeles, Calif. The giant blue Winnebago, covered in the signature Paul Frank monkey face logo (known to fans as “Julius”), has made its way East across the Southern portion of the United States and will be coming back through the Northern Route.

Tour stops will showcase a retrospective exhibit displaying limited edition co-branded products dating back over a decade. Other activities include a Creation Station where aspiring designers of all ages can submit art for the chance to create an exclusive Paul Frank t-shirt sold at, a battle of the bands, silk screening, ping-pong, a “puppy prom” inspired fashion show and so much more. The Winnebago will feature a product showroom and lounge showcasing Paul Frank’s latest collection. The newly equipped Winnebago also features interactive stations for social media and music all driven by custom designed furniture incorporating the ipad.
