Happening now: Morgan Junction Community Festival 2011

The sun’s not here just yet but the people are. C’mon down to Fauntleroy/California for the 2011 edition of the Morgan Junction Community Festival. We’re with the booths behind Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor)/Zeeks Pizza on the northwest corner; we’ll be updating with photos and video Music and performances are under way in the park just north of neighboring Beveridge Place Pub – with The Bubbleman coming up at 11:15. His trademark purple van is already here:

The park is also where to get your “Bite of Morgan” tickets – free but there’s a limited quantity of booklets, first-come, first-served. Look for the info booth with the whiteboard:

Festival’s on till 7 pm.

12:06 PM: The sun is appearing intermittently. It was out for Bubbleman’s tour de force in the park:

Be sure to wander south of the park toward Feedback Lounge – not just because we’re hanging out in the vendor area behind it, along with cool people like Steve Louie and Ed Pottharst, two of this area’s coordinators from the Department of Neighborhoods:

… but also so you can buy raffle tickets to benefit the West Seattle Food BankShannon‘s at the booth right now:

And on the north side of the Feedback, you’ll find a booth with Full Tilt Ice Cream:

(Sorry, they’re not part of the free “bites” – so bring a few dollars. And West Seattle Thriftway across the street is selling barbecue lunch with all proceeds benefiting the festival!) The music/entertainment lineup is here.

2:01 PM: The free live music is at centerstage – literally – as the afternoon goes on (see the lineup link above). There are performances in the park and at a stage alongside Beveridge Place Pub. Steady stream of visitors overall – people are here with their dogs, too, lots of families with kids, and thanks to everyone who has stopped by to say hi! We’ll launch a second report within the hour with some of what else is going on – including the vendors on the other side of the street.

    hope they don’t run out of Bite of Morgan ticket books before I can get there, about 1pm; never been to Morgan Fest, look forward to this, and Paddle Fest at Jack Block Park

Sorry, comment time is over.
