(UPDATING late Thursday with video and more photos)
(Live SDOT camera looking north along California from Alaska)
In The Junction, the barricades are up and the pre-West Seattle Summer Fest fun (and setup!) has begun. California is closed from Edmunds to Oregon, then open for cross-traffic at Oregon, and closed again from Oregon north to Genesee; Alaska is closed between 42nd and 44th. Tonight’s plan includes:
*West Seattle Art Walk until 9 pm – see artist/venue previews, and the map/list, here
*44th/Morgan (video above), musicians live until 8 pm outside Click! Design That Fits (WSB sponsor)
Check in on your favorite eating/drinking places – many have other special plans tonight; Puerto Vallarta called us earlier and said its kitchen will be open until 1 am.
ADDED 7:17 PM: We heard from Linda Cox with RE/MAX on 44th – they’re having a burger barbecue! Live music too:
So wander westward while you’re in The Junction.
7:36 PM: And a reminder that Art Walk is under way all over the peninsula, not just The Junction. Erik LaSeur shares a photo from the Center for Movement and Healing in Gatewood:
That’s artist Jolene Hagin, showing encaustics & oils. More to come!
