Savor the last bits of summer with some fun events from our community calendar:
Saturday 1-4pm: Music, food, and community sprit return to Flo Ware Park on Saturday. The theme of the event is a tribute to legendary Seattle saxophonist Joe Brazil. I’ve been to two of the previous events and had a lot of fun, so take advantage of the Leschi Community Council’s hard work and enjoy some good tunes in the park.
Saturday: Get tips on healthy eating, share your recipes, and enter your best dish in the recipe contest at the Gardening-Based Food & Nutrition Fair at the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd
Saturday 2-10pm: If there were a contest for most social and engaged neighbors, the block on 20th Ave between Spring & Union would be serious contenders. They’re holding their 17th Annual Block Party this Saturday from 1pm to 10pm, with food, music, a water slide, and a bouncy house. Last year’s event was a lot of fun, so check it out.
Saturday 6-7pm: Attend the opening party for the Squid vs. Whale mural next to the Twilight Exit. And if you haven’t yet been in for a drink and fried bacon at the new Twilight, what better time than now?
Sunday 3-6pm: We’ve seen a lot of violent tragedies involving kids over the last few years, and a group of community members have planned a big march and rally to support the city’s youth. The goal is to unite central and south, with one half of the march starting at 23rd & Jackson, and the other half starting at MLK & S. Walker. They’ll meet up around 4pm at Sam Smith Park for inspiring words, free food, and entertainment.
Weekend Movie: Central Cinema (a CDNews sponsor) is showing what I’ve heard to be a great movie about the local Rat City Roller Girls: Blood on the Flat Track. Check out the trailer for more. It runs through 9/2 at 7pm and 9:30pm.
