Big fun on the way this afternoon and evening – here are a few highlights from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:
LAST DAY OF SCHOOL: Some independent/parochial schools are already out for the year; today is the last day – with early dismissal – for several more, including Tilden School (WSB sponsor), Our Lady of Guadalupe, and Holy Rosary. (Anyone else?) Seattle Public Schools‘ last day of classes isn’t until next Tuesday.
‘OUT OF SCHOOL BASH’: 4-7 pm at High Point Community Center, a celebration of the fact school’s ALMOST out, with free hot dogs and hamburgers, plus games, bouncy toys, and entertainment, all kids welcome. (6920 34th SW)
CARNIVAL: You’re also invited to Mount View Elementary School in White Center for a carnival and benefit 4-6 pm today, raising money for its PTA and also for its sister school in Honduras. Facepainting, bouncy houses, raffle prizes, games, more. (10811 12th SW)
‘PARTY PROTEST ON THE SOUND’: In case you missed our early-morning roundup of updates related to Shell at Terminal 5, another Friday night concert has been announced for the protest barge off Don Armeni Boat Ramp, titled “#BringTheBoom: Party Protest on the Sound,” 4-9 pm. Here’s the tentative lineup as tweeted by sponsor Hollow Earth Radio. (1220 Harbor SW)
WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON? See for yourself – for today/tonight, this weekend, and beyond – on our calendar.
P.S. Two weeks after the West Seattle party thrown by KEXP for our neighborhood “winning” the Hood-To-Hood pledge drive last year, today is THIS YEAR’S chance to donate and potentially bring it back next year.
