In honor of today’s spotlight event, the 2nd annual West Seattle Bee Festival, we share another photo of a recent honey-bee swarm, courtesy of Sandra Braun. We reported on the swarm two weeks ago; if you see one, don’t panic, call a beekeeper – see this page from the Puget Sound Beekeepers’ Association. Now, to the big event (at which the bees will be in their enclosure):
WEST SEATTLE BEE FESTIVAL AND PARADE: A parade, picnic, and festival celebrate the start of the second year of the West Seattle Bee Garden on the north side of High Point Commons Park. Come “bee” in the parade, for starters – gathering at 10 am at West Seattle Elementary School (6760 34th SW), parading at 11 to the park (31st and Graham) for music, food, crafts, face-painting, more. Don’t let a showery forecast get in your way. More in our recent preview.
