One last roundup of photos from Night Out – which, given the many groups of 40/50/more we saw as well as heard about, had thousands of West Seattle participants. All but the last 2 of these photos are by Christopher Boffoli, who went to a few north/central parties to which we’d been invited – then roamed and found more – and gathered neighbors for a group shot at each one. Top photo is from one of the biggest parties, 48th/Dawson, which also had a bike parade:
For the next image, Christopher explains: “47th between Edmunds and Hudson were holding up signs that read
Get Well Betty’ in honor of neighborhood fixture Betty Broughton who was instrumental in planning the block party but who unfortunately was admitted to the hospital (earlier in the day) and could not be there”:
Also west of The Junction, Christopher found a party at Ercolini Park:
49th SW, between Oregon and Genesee:
46th SW, between Genesee and Dakota:
On 40th SW, between Dakota and Genesee:
From that same party, two of the neighborhood kids:
39th, between Dakota and Andover:
Between Beach Drive and the north end of Genesee Hill, you’ll find Hillcrest, whose neighbors have a party so big, there’s even a bouncer for the kids:
Now on to Admiral, where this party was on 46th SW between Hill and Walker:
42nd, between Hanford and Hinds:
And in Alki, from 61st SW between Spokane and Hinds:
Again, all the above photos were by Christopher Boffoli; the next two are from Jason Grotelueschen, at 40th and Hinds, who says their party drew about 50 people: “In the group photo, several of us are lined up from “longest time on the block” on the left (Earl & Sylvia win the prize at 45 years) to “shortest time on the block” (2.5 months) on the right”:
Earl, he notes, sported his name tag in this spot for a while:
P.S. If you’re a Block Watch captain anywhere in WS – make sure you have joined up with the West Seattle Blockwatch Captains’ Network!
