Summer Streets Celebration This Sunday on Alki

re-posted from SDOT’s blog

SDOT is hosting a street party Sunday, May 19 along Alki.  This free event opens the city’s largest public space – its streets – so people can walk, bike, roll, run, skip and shop – without having to watch out for cars! Participate in the West Seattle 5K Run/Walk in the morning, sponsored by West Seattle High School PTSA.  Stay for the party starting at 11 a.m.  And what a great time it is going to be. The Alki Beach Creeps are joining forces with us to bring the largest costumed bike parade in West Seattle’s 111 year history. Skate Like a Girl is planning skating workshops; Hollow Earth Radio is spinning tunes in-between live music; Coastal Boutique is hosting a t-shirt tye-dyeing station; Alki Bike and Board will be repairing bikes; and the Alki Art Fair—West Seattle’s premier art and music showcase—is inviting local artists to join the fun.  Check out our activity location map for moreWestSea Summer Sts 3_b RESIZEdetails on who is coming out to play and the location of all the restaurants along the corridor—yummy!

The fun continues throughout the summer. Celebrating its sixth year, Summer Streets has quickly become a tradition and a special part of summers in Seattle.  Local merchants and artists work together months in advance to make each event even better every year.  Neighbors, families and friends mark their calendars so they don’t miss it. Remaining events are scheduled for:

 

Ballard—Friday, May 31 from 3:30 to 7 p.m.
PhinneyWood —Friday, August 9 from 6 to 9:30 p.m.
Rainier Valley—Saturday, August 17 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
