Sunshine is expected again tomorrow, so it’ll be a great day to spend part of your Saturday a short distance east of West Seattle, at Duwamish Waterway Park in South Park, for the annual Duwamish River Festival.
The day will start with the Walk/Bike/Paddle fundraiser to help support the festival and get you there in a fun way – starting at 9 am, with departures from West Seattle. Not too late to sign up! Check out the options here.
