West Seattle Wednesday: Seafair ships; Easy Street music…

Been meaning to go look at the Denny school demolition? Time’s running out – as of yesterday afternoon, nothing’s left but part of the main building fronting on 30th SW south of SW Thistle. That work continues today, and here are other highlights from the WSB West Seattle Events calendar;

SEAFAIR FLEET PARADE OF SHIPS TODAY: Around 1:45 pm, you should see the Seafair Parade of Ships in Elliott Bay, from north- and northeast-facing West Seattle shores, as they head to the downtown waterfront. Flyovers are planned too, in honor of the centennial of U.S. Navy aviation. Here’s our original preview listing the participating vessels – note that you may see some of them sooner; the USS Chafee, for example, is coming in this morning. Ship tours are tomorrow-Sunday. More here.

    Does anyone know the # for the Host a Sailor Program? I couldn’t find anything posted for 2011 on the internet.

Sorry, comment time is over.
