We’re socked in on the Gatewood/Fauntleroy line – how about you? The weather is supposed to improve later – and then, the National Weather Service says, it’ll be extra-hot over the holiday weekend. But we’re not there yet. Here are Thursday highlights from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:

WADING POOL AND SPRAYPARK: The only West Seattle wading pool still open for the season is Lincoln Park (8011 Fauntleroy Way), and the hotline confirms it WILL be open 11 am-8 pm today, as is Highland Park spraypark (1100 SW Cloverdale), both open daily through Labor Day.

LOG HOUSE MUSEUM: Noon-4 pm Thursdays-Sundays, you’re invited to visit the home of West Seattle’s history, HQ of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, and these event-light final days of summer might be your perfect opportunity. (61st SW/SW Stevens)

SWAP MEET 4 PEACE & FILM SCREENING: 2 pm at Muse Gallery in North Delridge. Everyone’s invited to a “potluck-style mini-swap meet” and film screening at the wrap of a summer program:

Bring an item or two to swap w someone else! It could be anything- music, film, art related! Vintage clothes? Books? Music? Funny props? Art? Art supplies? Join us as we celebrate and wrap our 6-week summer session as Across the Bridge. We’ll also be screening Team Introvert’s short film “Star” right next door at The Skylark at 3 pm! We’re an all-ages crew of creatives, exploring work opportunities in Seattle and we went on 10 field trips this summer. Feeling proud of our crew and happy to connect with new friends and old! Join us! Bring a friend.
