Options for your Sunday – right after this reminder:
TRAFFIC ALERT: The Highway 99 and I-5 closures are scheduled to continue today, but in the past they’ve ended earlier – especially 99 – so we’ll be monitoring through the day, and will publish a separate update if that does happen. In the meantime, southbound 99 is closed between the West Seattle Bridge and Battery St. Tunnel, and northbound I-5 has lane closures starting south of the city and stretching to Olive Way.
Now, what’s up:
WALK WITH PODCAST: WEST SEATTLE: 10 am, meet at Whale Tail Park in Alki to join Podcast: West Seattle on a history-rich hike including Schmitz Park. Full details here. (59th SW/SW Lander)
WEST SEATTLE FARMERS’ MARKET: 10 am-2 pm, fall freshness! In the street in the heart of The Junction. (California SW between SW Oregon and SW Alaska)
PUMPKIN CARVING: 2-4 pm at Puget Ridge Edible Park:
Come enjoy pumpkin carving with your neighbors at PREP. Not only do you get to have fun with your neighbors, but you can leave the mess there as the scraps can go directly to the garden’s compost. Bring your own pumpkin, but there will be about 20 pumpkins for anyone who doesn’t have one. Afterward, you can stay and learn more about PREP during the monthly work meeting.
