Your West Seattle highlights for this last day of July:
WADING POOLS: Though it’s cloudy and cooler this morning, Seattle Parks says they’ll be open. Your Tuesday pools are Lincoln Park (8011 Fauntleroy Way SW), 11 am-8 pm, and Delridge (Genesee/Delridge), noon-6:30 pm.
SEAFAIR PARADE OF SHIPS: While the official “parade” is set to pass the downtown waterfront at 1 pm, the ships sail past West Seattle shores before that – we’ll be watching and will publish a report when they are. As announced early today, the participants in today’s parade:
