Good morning! It’s Memorial Day, and we start with some info you might find helpful:

TRAFFIC/TRANSIT: No traffic report today because of the holiday, but you can see local cameras here. … Metro buses are on a Sunday schedule … So are the West Seattle Water Taxi and its shuttle buses … Sound Transit Route 560 is not running today … And the Washington State Ferries Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth run is on the regular weekday schedule.

OTHER MEMORIAL DAY NOTES: Seattle Parks community centers, teen centers, Environmental Learning Centers, and indoor pools are closed … Schools are closed … Seattle Public Library branches are closed … Today is a U.S. Postal Service holiday … If you’re going to a Seattle neighborhood with on-street pay stations/metered parking, you won’t have to pay, because it’s a city “free parking” day.

What’s happening today:

HELP PUT UP/TAKE DOWN JUNCTION FLAGS: American Legion Post 160 appreciates community volunteers to help put up and take down the flags in the West Seattle Junction. Meet on the northeast corner of California/Alaska at 9 am for the morning help and 5 pm for the evening removal.

SPRAYPARK OPEN: Third day of the 7-day-a-week season for Highland Park Spraypark, 11 am-8 pm. (1100 SW Cloverdale)

COLMAN POOL, LAST DAY OF FIRST PRE-SEASON WEEKEND: Three swim sessions, noon-7 pm, at the city-run outdoor saltwater pool at Lincoln Park. See the schedule here. (8011 Fauntleroy Way SW)

MARINERS FLYOVER: If you see a Boeing C-17 Globemaster flying in the area around 1 pm, it’s a Mariners‘ game flyover.

MEMORIAL DAY SERVICE: The traditional service presented by American Legion Post 160 and community partners is at 2 pm this afternoon at Forest Lawn (WSB sponsor), all welcome. (6701 30th SW)

… FOLLOWED BY A COOKOUT: Again this year, after the Forest Lawn event, Post 160 invites you to a community cookout at its headquarters in The Triangle, 3:15-5 pm. (3618 SW Alaska)
