If you’re going to the Seafair Pirates’ Landing on Alki today, keep an eye out for the distinctive red polo shirts of West Seattle Hi-Yu Summer Festival royalty (like Queen Kayli and Junior Court Princesses Amanda and Elena at right) and volunteers – they’re among the community groups helping out at the big event. Hi-Yu has also just announced that their summer booklet is now available – free! – at local businesses; it’s full of information about the festival, its events, and other West Seattle summer fun. You can also download (or view) it as a PDF – linked from this update on the new Hi-Yu website. You’ll also find copies at West Seattle Summer Fest in The Junction next Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Among the other Hi-Yu events coming up are the free Concert in the Park (east lawn of Hiawatha with the West Seattle Big Band, 7:30 pm July 17th) and, as noted here last week, the Junior Court Coronation during Hiawatha Fun Fest, 1 pm July 20th (there’s still time for girls to apply to become Hi-Yu royalty – details here).
