The full list, as is the case every day, is on the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar. But before we get too much further into Sunday, five highlights:
SOLSTICE FESTIVAL AT TWILIGHT: If yesterday’s big events kept you from checking this out, today’s your chance, 10 am-3 pm at Twilight Gallery and Boutique in The Junction.
(Clare, setting up outside Twilight as part of the Solstice Festival)
Crafters, vendors, and artists are part of today’s plan. (4306 SW Alaska)
KICKOFF FOR ALKI BEACH 5K RUN/WALK: 11 am-3 pm, stop by West Seattle Runner (WSB sponsor) to sign up early for the August 24 Alki Beach 5K benefiting Northwest Hope and Healing – get a deal on the registration fee and 10 percent off in-store WSR purchases. (California/Charlestown)
JUNETEENTH CELEBRATION: 2-6 pm at Neighborhood House’s High Point Center, as previewed here; Juneteenth started as a celebration of the end of slavery in Texas but took on significance nationwide as “the second Independence Day.” (6400 Sylvan Way)
SOUTHWEST SEATTLE HISTORICAL SOCIETY HOME TOUR: This year’s home tour is at the lodge that has become the Gatewood Bed and Breakfast, 3-5 pm – details on the SWSHS website. (7446 Gatewood Road SW)
11:50 AM P.S. While out earlier, we noticed the Chief Sealth IHS Cheer Squad waving signs for a car wash in the John L. Scott lot, 5200 block of California SW. Readers are always asking us about upcoming benefit car washes – so if you’re having one, PLEASE let us know ahead of time so we can get it into the calendar … firstname.lastname@example.org (preferably a week or more in advance). Thanks!
