WEEKEND SCENES: Duwamish River Festival returns

Now until 5 pm, Seattle’s only river is being celebrated at the 2021 Duwamish River Festival. This time it’s at the future park space known as South Park Plaza, west of the South Park end of the bridge. Performances all afternoon! Here are Angeles de México:

And art (added: what you see below is the Duwamish River Dragon, by Cleopatra Cutler):

Dozens of educational booths so you can learn about the river and those who rely on it – and what you can do to protect it (such as, gardening with native plants). Food trucks and stands, also featuring local restaurants.

ADDED 4:47 PM: A few more scenes from the festival, which is presented by the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition:

That’s Carmen Martinez of DRCC, who leads the Duwamish Valley Youth Corps, with Seattle Police Chief Adrian Diaz.

      Thank you for the reminder, I intended to look her up once we got back to HQ today; got sidetracked. Adding credit above. She introduced herself onstage as being from West Seattle!

Sorry, comment time is over.
