West Seattle Hi-Yu float is almost homeless: Can you help ASAP?

One month ago, we brought you an update from the West Seattle Hi-Yu Festival leadership, seeking new storage space for their float – which represents West Seattle in parades around the region. Today, Hi-Yu’s Carol Winston e-mailed to say that while they’ve gotten some “leads,” they’re out of time – the float MUST be out of its temporary storage space TOMORROW. Here’s what Carol says they’re looking for:

We need a secure area that can park our 24’ trailer with float vehicle on top. Ideally an enclosed site, such as warehouse space, large garage, etc. would be nice, but at this point just an outside fenced space would be an answer to prayer. We need the space for a month or so, although we also have to find space to start building the float. If someone had a space that would work for both….that would be awesome! It doesn’t necessarily need to be in West Seattle, but somewhere close by would be great.

UPDATED FROM ORIGINAL POST: If you can help, here’s who to call: Hi-Yu president Tim Winston at 206-938-2088.

    does anyone know anyone that is affiliated with the old hueling buildings? that would be a great storage space…. Just a thought.

    It absolutely would be, P. And even if there are, and could be, insurance issues with having people work on the float there, it could be a quick solution for the month of storage…anyone??

    If anyone has any connections we would appreciate it. We have been using the part of Huling owned by Harbor Properties, but they are ready to start on their project.

    i was going to mention the huling place, too! it would be an excellent place to store it. specifically the building near the fire station.

Sorry, comment time is over.
