This just might be the busiest week of the summer, for big annual events, so we thought we’d put out an early reminder – these and many OTHER events are all on the WSB West Seattle Events Calendar, which you can review (stretching weeks and months ahead) at any time, but for a quick look ahead to the biggest events of the next 4 days/nights:
LUNA PARK BLOCK PARTY: The 2nd annual Block Party is tomorrow (Thursday) night, hosted by Ola Salon and featuring other local businesses and organizations. 6-9 pm, along SW Avalon Way south of the West Seattle Bridge.
HIAWATHA FUN FEST AND WEST SEATTLE HI-YU JUNIOR COURT CORONATION: Noon-3 pm Friday in the Hiawatha Community Center park, Fun Fest brings bouncy rides and other activities for kids – and during all that, at 1 pm, the new Hi-Yu Junior Court will be coronated, in a fun program on an outdoor stage.
WEST SEATTLE OUTDOOR MOVIES: The series of six free outdoor movies in the courtyard between Hotwire Online Coffeehouse and the office of Dr. Heidi Horwitz, DDS (both WSB sponsors) officially starts with “Pretty in Pink” on Saturday night, with “50/50″ as a special Friday night fundraiser for Thrive Through Cancer this week too (info here; the rest of the series is here).
MEDITERRANEAN FANTASY FESTIVAL: Saturday and Sunday in and around Hiawatha – which means extra people on parade day, since that’s where the parade begins! 11 am to 7 pm is the performance window on Saturday, 11 am-5 pm on Sunday, with vendors starting up a half-hour before that both days. More info here.
WEST SEATTLE FLOAT DODGER 5K: 9:45 am Saturday, before the parade, the first-ever running of this benefit 5K – if you haven’t registered yet, online signups are closed, but you can sign up in person; full details on the official website.
WEST SEATTLE AMERICAN LEGION POST 160 GRAND PARADE: On Saturday, the parade has close to 100 entries (watch for a more detailed preview ahead), from California/Lander to California/Edmunds, starting with the Seattle Police Motorcycle Drill Team leaving the north end of the route at about 10:30, with the Seattle Police Pipes and Drums (and visiting counterparts from Boston) right behind, then the Vancouver B.C. Police motorcycles, and then the rest of the parade. Meantime, the Rotary Club of West Seattle Kiddie Parade leaves California/Genesee at 11 am. The official parade website’s here.
STUFF THE BUS: Sunday between 10 am and 2 pm, bring diapers to the big WestSide Baby bus in the parking lot of AmericanWest Bank in The Junction, 40th/Alaska – it’s their biggest drive of the year, helps qualify WS Baby for a big match, and helps thousands of local families!
This is by no means EVERYTHING happening this weekend – but these are the major annual events. Lots more listings are on the WSB West Seattle Events Calendar.
