The final day of the return of West Seattle Summer Fest – and the Farmers’ Market one-day relocation – start our Sunday list:
It’s been a fun festival; our Saturday coverage is here and here, and our Friday coverage is here and here. Today’s festival hours are 10 am-5 pm; we’ll be back on the north side of the Info Booth (California/Alaska), which is also where you can buy Summer Fest T-shirts, get and turn in your Whale Trail maps, and solve problems from first-aid needs to lost-and-found. Other Summer Fest basics:
Vendor booths: On California between Oregon and Edmunds
Sidewalk Sale: Outside many year-round Junction shops, including some on 42nd, 44th, Oregon
Music: None today, a change this year
Kids Zone: SW Alaska west of California (free games, plus 5 inflatables accessible for $20 daily pass)
Food: SW Alaska east of California (plus year-round restaurants/bars, some of which have added sidewalk cafés)
Whale Trail activity for kids: Get and return your card at the Info Booth – also see the Springer presentation at the Senior Center (4217 SW Oregon) at 3 pm
Bus reroutes: Follow that link to see route-by-route info on where the stops have moved to until the streets reopen Sunday night
Because of the festival …
WEST SEATTLE FARMERS’ MARKET: 10 am-2 pm, the market is happening at its usual time, but at a DIFFERENT location for today only – one block north of where you’ll usually find it – north of SW Oregon. First time ever in this spot – past years have relocated the market elsewhere for the day.
Here’s what else is happening today:
