The no-parking signs are out, and we’ve been mentioning it all week (and then some), so here’s hoping that even if you’re not running/walking in the West Seattle 5K (co-sponsored by WSB), you know it’ll close Alki/Harbor SW for a few hours on Sunday morning. The race starts from 61st/Alki just after 9 am; the closure starts sooner, and usually lasts past 11 am. (If you want to participate and aren’t signed up yet, you can do it tomorrow morning at 8 am on site – or go to West Seattle Runner [2743 California SW; WSB sponsor] today until 6 pm.)
Meantime, we’ve learned of one other event that could cause some congestion on the West Seattle waterfront tomorrow – another protest at the Kinder Morgan facility on Harbor Island, because of the Trans-Mountain Pipeline Expansion. Organizers say a flotilla of “kayaktivists” and Indigenous canoe families will be launching from Don Armeni Boat Ramp for a 12:30 pm seagoing protest tomorrow.
