West Seattle Sunday: WS Car Show, Camp Long Mountain Fest…

The day’s off to a murky start but the forecast says it’s expected to clear off and become partly sunny. The big event:

WEST SEATTLE CAR SHOW: New location, with more to see and do!

(Added 8:46 am – WSB photo, one of the first arrivals)
10 am-3 pm on the north side of the South Seattle College (WSB sponsor) campus, where you’ll find not only the cars and motorcycles who show up to show off, but also SSC’s Automotive Technology and Northwest Wine Academy programs, both open to visitors as will be the Seattle Chinese Garden immediately to the north (kids’ activities are planned there too). Food trucks too. Admission’s free for spectators. Info’s on the WSCS site, and we’ll be reporting live as we do every year. (6000 16th SW)

Also from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:

HOLY FAMILY STREET FAIR: 9:30 am-4 pm, second and final day of this free street fair with vendors and entertainment.

(20th SW south of Roxbury, which is closed to motor vehicles for the fair)

WEST SEATTLE FARMERS’ MARKET + ZUCCHINI 500: 10 am-2 pm, the market’s in the street in the heart of The Junction as always (three months now since the big change!) and today, you’ll also find the annual Zucchini 500 at the market from 11 am-1 pm – the prolifically produced late-summer veggies will be available for kids to turn into racing machines and a course to run them on. (California SW between SW Oregon and SW Alaska)

    Superbird! First time I saw one of these I was in 3rd grade at Lafayette Elementary. Somebody on 45th in the alley behind the playground had one of these.

    Totally random question, but car related. Did that Nissan commercial filmed in West Seattle air that you know of? I have been seeing a Toyota commercial onTV filmed in parts of our fair neighborhood and it reminded me of that commercial filming.

      Az, sorry, I don’t know. We need to do a better job in the future of getting production contacts when we can so that we can ask. Once in a while folks tell us if they spot commercials that were filmed here, like the Subaru Make-A-Wish one … TR

    I can’t drag any of my boys away from the game to go to the car show…

      Sam, just as well, it’ll probably be warmer and brighter after the game :) the sun IS breaking through, I need to take a photo as proof …

    I’m heading down right after the game. Very happy to see the car show continue in their new location, gonna buy a shirt and support it any way I can!

    Any lowriders down there?

    • WSB September 13, 2015 (1:02 pm)

      Dadude, my co-publisher, who’s been roaming (I’ve been tethered to the table), says he’s seen at least one. Lots of room to roam here – maybe next year!

    Jim, the Couet brothers, Mike and Marty had the cars that could be seen from the Lafayette playground back in 1969-70.

Sorry, comment time is over.
