WEEKEND SCENE: West Seattle Junction Fall Festival fun

(WSB photos. Above, kids’ zone, presented by Hope Lutheran School)

11:33 AM: If you’re not already in The Junction, this is the epicenter of West Seattle fun on autumn’s first Sunday – the Fall Festival is on, in the street on California SW south of Alaska.

Music (The Potholes, above) and games started at 11 – including the cornhole tournament:

(added) How about giant checkers?

Starting at noon, you can buy chili tastes and vote on your favorite. Noon is also when the Seattle Thrillers are scheduled to dance, and two sets of pie-eating competitors will face off, kids and adults. This is all on until 2 pm (while the Farmers’ Market continues in its usual area north of Alaska).

12:32 PM: Go get your chili while it lasts, right in front of KeyBank as usual:

(Competitors: Admiral Pub, Brookdale, Camp West, Elliott Bay Brewing, Husky Deli, Margie’s Cafe, Pecos Pit BBQ – voting results announced at festival’s end.)

2:12 PM: Congratulations to Husky Deli, which won the chili-cookoff vote, with Margie’s Café (from the Senior Center) coming in second. (~300 flights of chili were purchased for $10 each – proceeds help the West Seattle Junction Association, a nonprofit, cover festival costs.)

P.S. Next up in The Junction – the Wine Walk this Friday (buy your ticket fast – this always sells out) and trick-or-treating on Sunday, October 29th (costume parade too)!

    I find it confusing that they are calling this the West Seattle Fall Festival when we have had the Fauntleroy Fall Festival for many many years and the FFF has always been so respectful of the West Seattle Harvest Fest. They should have picked a different name.

      For that or any other feedback, you can contact the Junction Association directly too: info@wsjunction.org
