Highland Park is the only neighborhood in West Seattle where you can start your New Year’s Eve with a parade – and tonight’s 9th annual Not-So-Silent-Night Parade through the streets near Highland Park Improvement Club was huge, with more than 100 participating, all ages as always:

The light of the almost-full moon shone on the parade, with participants invited to bring drums, noisemakers, musical instruments, lights, whatever adds to the cheery stroll along the sidewalks – here’s what it sounded like near the start:


The weather was about as good as it gets – dry and not too cold (it’s a no-matter-what-the-weather parade, and we even recall icy 2010). Things warmed up considerably once everyone was back in the HPIC lot, as the Sage Comet Performance returned after skipping NYE 2016:

Then everyone moved into the historic HPIC building to join the Corner Bar party, usually on first Fridays except for New Year’s Eve:

For the holiday, there was the extra element of a masquerade party – those in costume include DJs Dr. Lehl and Evan:

The DJs and musician McTuff are providing the HPIC sounds for as long as the party goes on – 1 am or so. And we suspect it’s the only West Seattle NYE party with a hot-dog stand in the courtyard:

You’re invited, 1116 SW Holden.
