Tonight’s the night! Two big multi-event happenings to start with
SUMMER FEST EVE: 6 pm is when California (Genesee to Edmunds) and Alaska (42nd to 44th) close for Summer Fest setup and the pre-festival street party begins! Bubbles, fashion, music, more. Details are in the preview we published last night. We’ll be there for as-it-happens coverage starting around 6 pm (you can check our Twitter feed, too).
WEST SEATTLE ART WALK: Part of the Summer Fest Eve fun is this month’s Art Walk, 5 pm until late, but remember that there are Art Walk venues outside The Junction, too! The venue list/map – where you’ll find art, as well as where you’ll find food/beverage specials – is here along with previews.
Here’s what else you should know:
COLMAN POOL CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC: Today is the first of five days this month during which Lincoln Park’s outdoor pool will be closed to the public because of swim meets.
Neighborhood House is a non-profit agency dedicated to building community and helping families achieve their goals for health, education, and self-sufficiency. We are especially interested in meeting potential preschool teachers, home visitors, and supervisors at this event where candidates can learn about positions and have a short interview so we can get to know each other.
