West Seattle Saturday: What’s up today besides Summer Fest

We hope to see you (again) today at West Seattle Summer Fest in The Junction. But it’s not alone in the “big things happening today” arena, so before we get back to continuous festival coverage (and breaking news) later today, we wanted to remind you about other cool events on tap:

(Photo just sent by Kathy, from the sale site)>
HELP FOR HANNAH: 7228 39th SW (map) in Gatewood, under way now and continuing till 2 pm. First previewed here; friends and relatives putting on a yard sale (they’ve even got two homemade quilts!), bake sale and lemonade stand to help the family of Hannah Grage, a 4-year-old West Seattle girl diagnosed with leukemia last April. Also see this post in the WSB Forums.

LITTLE LEAGUE BREAKFAST/CAR WASH: West Seattle Little League is raising money for its 10-11 All-Stars, who are going to the state tournament after winning the district championship – but it’s in Yakima, and the travel is expensive for kids’ families. 10 am-1 pm, pancakes and car washing, all happening at Bar-S Fields on Alki Point (map); here’s our original preview.

EDIBLE GARDEN TOUR, CHICKEN-COOP TOUR: 11 am-4 pm, some of West Seattle’s greatest edible gardens are open for the 3rd annual Community Harvest of Southwest Seattle Edible Garden Tour. Here’s how to get a ticket and map; for a bit extra, you also will get admission to the West Seattle stops on the Seattle Tilth Chicken Coop Tour. (Also note, as previewed here, CHoSS has a seed sale during the tour hours too.)

SEAFAIR PIRATES LANDING: Arrrr! They’re scheduled to come ashore in the noon hour – always fun to look out toward the water and try to figure out how they’re going to do it this time – but there are also booths and activities open earlier if you get down there sooner to stake out your spot.

ALKI ARTS OPENS: The new gallery space is scheduled to open its doors today on Alki, next to Cactus. (Here’s our story from last week.)

NIGHT MARKET: As part of the push to bring healthy food to Delridge, fresh produce will be on sale – and entertainment is planned – during the first-ever Night Market event outside Super 24 (map), 4-8 pm (previewed here).

OUTDOOR MOVIE: Outside Coastal boutique on Alki, the second of their three monthly outdoor movies is screening tonight – “Goonies,” at dusk.

And there’s more – see the WSB West Seattle Events calendar!

    It can tricky to find the Help for Hannah sale. Here’s directions. Come check out all the great stuff.

    Take 35th to Webster and go West to 39th then turn right. Go two blocks and you’ll see the sale on the right.

    Thanks WS Blog readers you totally rock! Readers have donated gorgeous quilts, leather office chair, and lots of other wonderful things!

    Such a great community we live in!!

      We also made it by taking California to Othello and turning EAST on Othello, heading uphill. Have another pic or two to add – we stopped by en route to Summer Fest.

    West Seattle Thriftway is still selling delicious, freshly made pulled pork barbecue sandwiches out in front of the store – full lunch for $7 (includes 2 sides, chips & a drink) – all to benefit WestSide Baby!! I think they’ll be out there slingin’ sammiches til around 4.

Sorry, comment time is over.
