Another sign of the season in the West Seattle Junction – the wreaths went up on the lampposts this morning, and evergreen garlands will follow shortly.

This is another reason for us to remind you that the biggest night for this year’s West Seattle Junction Hometown Holidays is this Saturday (December 2nd) – first, starting at 3 pm, SW Alaska will be closed between California and 42nd for a Night Market, not only a chance to shop local vendors but also for seasonal fun including Santa photos and for kids to decorate wooden snowflakes that they’ll be able to hang on the tree in Junction Plaza Park – the same tree that will be lit in a 5 pm program hosted this year by Sundae + Mr. Goessl. See the full Hometown Holidays (co-sponsored by WSB) event lineup here.

    In case someone is reading comments from the Junction Association this was a total bust for local merchants along California last year. The event itself is great, but having the night market along California ave would help to include the local shops during this event as well. I worked in one of the local shops last year and it was a ghost town along California all afternoon & evening.

      Last year it only ran 4-8 pm and was pretty small, just a few booths, so that wouldn’t seem like much to distract people away from the year-round stores. I understand it might be a bit bigger this year but I doubt it would ever be big enough to even merit closing one full block of California, as opposed to the short block on Alaska … (But we’d be happy to include info about what the stores are up to that night – editor@westseattleblog.com as always …)

    Wasn’t it pouring rain last year? That kept me away.

Sorry, comment time is over.
