That’s another photo from the West Seattle Car Show, which is on right now – fog or shine! Here are the toplines on that and other highlights for today, from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar (follow that link for even more listings):
WEST SEATTLE CAR SHOW: Sixth annual edition (co-sponsored by local businesses including WSB), with participating classic vehicles lining California SW in the heart of The Junction – closed to traffic – until mid-afternoon. The official end time is 4 pm but awards start around 3 and given that the weather might worsen later, we suggest you come see the pre-1980 cars/trucks/motorcycles early! If you’re coming by bus, note the reroutes here.
ZUCCHINI 500: As has been a tradition for years, WS Car Show day is also Zucchini 500 day at the West Seattle Farmers’ Market, which you will find in its usual spot at 44th/Alaska. Kids can make zucchini-mobiles and run them on the track, 10 am-1 pm (the market continues until 2).
Enjoy a few hours outdoors in a beautiful setting at the Garden’s monthly work party. Many hands help banish the weeds. Meet new garden manager Bob Seely, who recently moved to Seattle from the East Coast, where he managed large private gardens. Bob also has lived in Japan and has deep appreciation for both Japanese and Chinese garden style.
Drop in any time during the morning; some volunteers might stay beyond noon. Bring garden gloves and your favorite weeding hoe or tool.
An intrepid photographer, Bob’s son, risked life and limb to take the photo of the Garden site and sweeping skyline view. September/October Public Hours: Wednesday to Sunday, 11:30 am to 5 pm • Admission is FREE
Get to the garden from the north entrance of SSCC. (6000 16th SW)
SECOND-TIME SALE: Fauntleroy Church‘s big sale has an encore period for shoppers today, 11 am-1 pm. Might even be some holiday decor left (our photo is from sale prep on Friday):

CHILDREN’S POTLATCH: The Duwamish Longhouse hosts this free event with storytelling, kids’ crafts, and Duwamish singing/dancing, noon-3 pm; details in our calendar listing. (4705 West Marginal Way SW)
WANTED – LOVING HOMES: Got room in your heart and home for a cat/kitten? While you’re in The Junction for the WS Car Show and Farmers’ Market, stop by Next to Nature for the Friends of the Animals Foundation‘s adoption event, noon-3 pm. (4543 California SW)
JET CITY METRO AT SKYLARK: Did you catch this middle-schooler band’s story (and music video) here in the other day? (If not, go here, now!) They’re on the all-ages bill at Skylark Café and Club today, 4 pm. (3803 Delridge Way SW)
HIGH POINT NIGHT OUT: The High Point neighborhood decided to have its own “Night Out” instead of joining in the nationwide event last month – and tonight’s the night.
Six picnics in six parks, among other plans UPDATE: With the weather, events have been moved indoors, to Neighborhood House’s High Point Center (6400 SW Sylvan Way). It all starts at 6 pm.
