West Seattle Valentine’s Day 2013: What’s up today/tonight

Today’s list of calendar highlights is all about Valentine’s Day. Above, Sarah shares photos of the famous Duckies of Lowman Beach: “The Ducks are in full Valentine’s gear and sharing the ‘LOVE’ with their West Seattle neighbors who are loving the tunes, especially the children.” Find them at 7031 Beach Drive, on the south side of Lowman Beach Park. Lit up at night, too!

Tonight is also West Seattle Art Walk night:

From Alki to Morgan Junction and beyond, here’s the list/map of who’s participating in the winter Art Walk season. Tonight from 6-9 pm, stop by any of those venues to see what’s on display and, in many cases, meet the artist(s). Most of the venues/artists are also showcased on the official West Seattle Art Walk website – as you’ll see here.

Also for this Valentine’s Day:
