PHOTOS: Lucha Libre Volcánica returns to Duwamish Waterway Park

(WSB photos)

One more weekend spectacle to show you – it’s become an annual tradition next door in South Park, the luchadores (masked, aerobatic Mexican-style wrestlers) of Lucha Libre Volcánica facing off in an outdoor ring.


After hours of parade coverage, and a stop at the Alki Art Fair, we got to Duwamish Waterway Park just in time for Saturday afternoon’s final match.


The luchadores are students; Lucha Libre Volcánica has the only local school of lucha libre.


And as fierce as they all look in the ring, outside it, the wrestlers clearly love meeting their fans.


The show was sponsored by ECOSS – the Environmental Coalition of South Seattle. As it was wrapping up, the announcer mentioned that you can see the luchadores monthly at eVOLV Fitness (1317 Republican on Capitol Hill). Next event is next Saturday (July 30th), 8:30 pm.

    Awesome.  So much more entertaining than ‘pro’ wrestling.  Love that they do this for local events, bring in some crowds and entertain people.  Positive influences for kids, always a good thing.

Sorry, comment time is over.
