SEAFAIR PIRATES LANDING: You can make a day of it at Alki Beach, with vendors scheduled to start up around 9:30 am, though the Seafair Pirates themselves aren’t expected before the 11:30 am-12:30 pm window – if you’ve never been before, you’ll want to stake out a spot on the beach (Bathhouse vicinity) and watch the flotilla offshore to see where, when, and how the Pirates will approach and them storm ashore! Live music’s planned and more … details are on the Seafair website.
SOUTH PARK ‘LUCHA LIBRE EN LA CALLE’: The second annual edition of the popular Mexican sport, South Park style, promises to be even bigger than last year:
Our photo from a pre-show demonstration last year shows the luchadores’ (wrestlers) masks – a key part of their outfits – as are the showy moves. Tomorrow’s festivities start with kids’ activities at 3 pm and continue on through the wrestling itself (5:30 pm) – details on our partner site The South Park News. It’s a block party in the 8500 block of 14th Avenue S. (map).
