West Seattle photographer/pilot Long Bach Nguyen shares this aerial of the Highway 99 tunneling machine in its “launch pit” – the view you can’t get while driving by. No major road projects this weekend, by the way. Here are highlights for today/tonight before we get too much further along:
SPRAYPARK OPENS: At 11 am, the Highland Park Spraypark is scheduled to open – here’s our preview from Thursday. (11th/Cloverdale)
SOUP AND SANDWICH LUNCH: Everyone’s welcome at Seaview Methodist Church for the free monthly soup-and-sandwich lunch. 11:30-1:30. (46th/Graham)
WADING POOLS: With sunshine and warm temperatures, it’s a bonafide wading-pool day. In West Seattle, Delridge, EC Hughes, and Lincoln Park wading pools have Friday hours – see the citywide schedule here.
COLMAN POOL CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC: Meantime, outdoor Colman Pool is NOT open to the public today (or the rest of this weekend) because of swim-meet activity – here’s the CP schedule.
LOLLY BOOK LAUNCH AND SAMPLE SALE: 5 pm-midnight, details here. (4112 California SW)
MOVIE SCREENING: At South Seattle Community College (WSB sponsor), you’re invited to a special community screening of the documentary “Barzan,” described as “a moving story of a local family torn apart by immigration and the post 911 war on terror. The screening will be followed by a discussion of the film with a panel of experts on issues concerning the current immigration system and comprehensive reform.” It premiered recently at SIFF. 6 pm at SSCC’s Brockey Center, Room A, free tickets online. (6000 16th SW)
