A Taste of Kent, Washington

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT KENT?

  1. Kent is a city located in King County, Washington, United States, and is the third largest city in King County and the sixth largest in the state. An outlying suburb of Seattle, Kent is also the corporate home for companies such as REI and Oberto Sausage. Nearby towns include Renton and Tukwila to the north, Covington, and Lake Youngs to the east, Federal Way, Des Moines and SeaTac to the west, and Auburn, Federal Way, unincorporated King County and part of Covington to the south. The population as of April, 2010 was 92,411 according to the 2010 census. The total grew to an estimated 122,999 as of July 1, 2012, owing primarily to annexation.

  2. Throughout the 1980s, Kent residents had a reputation for being "rednecks". The city was frequently parodied by the Seattle sketch comedy show Almost Live. Sketches included Cops in Kent, where officers would stop a woman for not having big enough hair or stop a man for not wearing a John Deere baseball cap. In 1994, the show's producer announced that they would stop making fun of Kent, a promise they kept for three days.
