Full list on the West Seattle Weekend Lineup – here’s a direct link to the Sunday section. Highlights:

CAR-FREE ALKI, ER, WE MEAN “SEATTLE SUMMER STREETS”: We’ll be starting our coverage from Alki shortly after 8 am, when we’ll be out seeing where traffic’s being blocked off feeding into the beach. (First word likely via Twitter, so check here too.)

WEST SEATTLE 5K: At 9:30 am, it’s the walk/run that’s kicking off “Summer Streets” today, raising money for local schools. You can still register — just go to the Bathhouse, 8-9:20 am.

BEACH VOLLEYBALL: In addition to many other activities planned on Alki, it’s the second day of Alki Volleyball Association‘s season-opener.

WEST SEATTLE FARMERS’ MARKET: 10 am-2 pm in The Junction as always; here’s today’s “fresh sheet.”

WEST SEATTLE ROCK AND GEM SHOW: Second and final day of the annual extravaganza – FREE! – presented by the West Seattle Rock Club (WSB sponsor) – 10 am-5 pm, Masonic Hall (40th/Edmunds) – with kids’ activities (photo) as well as displays and vendors.

FREE YOGA! 11 am-12:15 pm at Sound Yoga (WSB sponsor). Just show up.

MAGIC AT THE ADMIRAL: Want to get out of the heat? 1:30 this afternoon, magician Phil Crosson (video) performs at Admiral Theater.

BIRTHDAY PARTIES: Not far from the car-free zone, Alki UCC church members plan to celebrate its centennial this morning by walking from the church’s original location off Beach Drive (by La Rustica) at 9 am, to its current location at 63rd/Hinds, celebrating the 100th anniversary. Tibbetts United Methodist Church has its Centennial Talent Show (and ice-cream social!) at 3 pm today. Kiwanis Club of West Seattle marks its 80th anniversary at 5 pm at South Seattle Community College; more here.
