The newest forecast suggests clear skies Thursday night through Saturday night (and maybe beyond) – good news for two major (and free!) outdoor entertainment events coming up: Thursday night, the 6-week Summer Concerts at Hiawatha series, presented by the Admiral Neighborhood Association, starts its third season. Above, the Gothard Sisters are the kickoff act. 6:30 pm Thursday, east lawn at Hiawatha Community Center, BYO blankets/chairs (and some $ for concessions if you want – we’re doublechecking on the final lineup for that), family-friendly. (Full season lineup here.)

Then Saturday night – a comedy classic is the second West Seattle Outdoor Movies event of the summer:

On the big screen in the courtyard by Hotwire Online Coffeehouse (WSB sponsor), it’s “Airplane!” – with magician Louie Foxx as preshow entertainment. Gates open 6:30 pm Saturday, movie starts around 9 (it was 9:15 pm last Sat.), free but concessions and raffle tickets benefit local nonprofits, so bring a few bucks if you can. (Full season lineup here – and add August 27th, the rescheduled night for rained-out “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.) P.S. Both the movies and concerts are free thanks to community sponsors (including WSB).


  1. Of course their playing Airplane, the funniest movie ever, the night of the Torch Light parade. :(

  2. Oh, I know … part of Team WSB has to be there as usual to help with the production, but I’m personally really torn … haven’t missed a Torchlight Parade in years and sure, you can rent/stream Airplane! – but how often do you get to see it on a big screen? I may just have to flip a coin … TR

  4. You’ll love the Gothard Sisters – talented fiddlers and Irish dancers who did their dance training with West Seattle’s own Comerford School of Irish Dance!
