Tomorrow the music heads east to Seacrest, outside Marination Ma Kai, noon-5 pm Sunday. Other Sunday events include 11 am-3 pm drag brunch at Arthur’s in The Admiral District, 1 pm roll-out parade – rollerskates, bicycles, etc. – from Alki Statue of Liberty Plaza (61st/Alki) and outdoor movie “The Birdcage” at Alki Playground at 7 pm Sunday. This is the ninth year for Alki Beach Pride, which was reduced in scope a bit during the pandemic.
