Saw that wonderful sentiment chalked on the sidewalk, as we walked from the start of the Admiral 4th of July Kids’ Parade route toward its conclusion at Hamilton Viewpoint Park. Next, a couple parade pics – we’ll have a full separate report later after uploading our video of the entire parade. First, the iPhone photo we shared on Twitter an hour and a half ago during the parade:
Here’s parade organizer Sherri Chun with the West Seattle Hi-Yu Junior Court (as they reminded the crowd, July 14 is the deadline to apply to be in this year’s Junior Court – details, and the application, here):
Part of the parade, crossing California at Atlantic:
Even if you missed the parade, family fun continues at Hamilton Viewpoint – check it out. Also in Admiral, Click! Design That Fits (WSB sponsor) has its annual 4th of July sale till 3 pm. Proprietors John and Frances Smersh shared a photo of their nephew Enzo, photographed on his way to the parade (visiting from Southern California, where we’re told they read our friend Tim‘s neighborhood-news website Altadena Blog!):
We asked what’s hot at the sale – Click! suggests these shelves, $154 after the half-off discount:
And then as we headed south toward WSB HQ – a stop at 35th/Graham as one of the city’s many hot new street-food trucks, Marination Mobile, set up – this is co-proprietor Roz:
They describe their food as Korean/Hawaiian (more details on their website) – they’re at HP till 2 pm (the Diversity Festival starts at 3 at Commons Park). Still to come, our complete parade report and more coverage of other events (the Log House Museum membership picnic – which you can attend even if you’re not a member yet, they’ll happily sign you up there! – runs noon-3 pm, and the C and P Coffee potluck/barbecue starts at 1), and check our Twitter feed online for the mobile updates we’re sending, with photos, as we make the rounds. Happy 4th!
