Happy Saturday! Spring officially arrives tonight. From the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar, here’s some of what you can do in the meantime:

SCOUTING FOR FOOD: Local Boy Scout/Cub Scout troops are collecting today in their annual door-to-door donation drive. The usual advance flyering was somewhat thwarted by last Sunday’s windstorm, so check our story (and the comments) to see if you’re in an area where they’ll be going door-to-door.

EQUINOX SUNSET WATCH: 6:45 pm at Solstice Park, welcome the spring equinox with NASA Solar System Ambassador and Skies Over West Seattle correspondent Alice Enevoldsen‘s sunset watch.

The gathering spot with the equinox/solstice markers is just upslope from the park’s tennis courts, which are across Fauntleroy from the north end of Lincoln Park. (7400 Fauntleroy Way SW)
