Another big Saturday event we’re previewing – the 11th annual Duwamish River Festival! The Duwamish runs along much of West Seattle’s eastern border, and this annual event presented by the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition celebrates not only efforts to improve the waterway, but also the cultures of those who live along it. The festival is headquartered at Duwamish Waterway Park in South Park, with free boat and kayak tours of the river, free food and entertainment, community environmental and health resources, and more. It runs noon-6 pm on Saturday (August 26th) and will be followed by an annual favorite – masked Mexican-style wrestling with Lucha Libre Volcánica at 6 pm in the park.
