Neighborhood power! Two West Seattle block parties tonight

You don’t have to wait for Night Out to have a block party … tonight, we got word of two in West Seattle. First note in announced the 2nd annual Seaview Swine-Que - last year’s edition was in September (just as well they didn’t wait this year, at this rate we may have fall snow). Can’t have a Swine-Que without the swine:

Joel Hagman provided the music.

Thanks to Shelly for the tip again this year; she says they procured a Beer Junction sponsorship once again too.

Not long after her note came in, we got word from Patrick in North Admiral that HIS neighborhood had its second annual block party under way:

Neighbors in the Walnut/College area hit the street to celebrate. Like Seaview, they had a bouncy house:

No pig here; the North Admiral party was potluck. P.S. Next organized “block party” type event on the West Seattle calendar is just six days away – Picnic at the Southwest Precinct next Saturday (August 20), 1-4 pm on SW Webster between Delridge and the south Home Depot entrance!

  2. Pic of the roast pig made me gag, but then I’m a vegetarian. Each to his own I guess…

  3. So can anyone in Seattle can close down a city street any time of the year or do you have to get permits for that? I understand the night out event where you register your street but how can you decide you are having a random block party and how can you just close the street without a permit or registering or?
