It’s a big summer weekend in the CD, with several large events to check out.
Unfortunately, I’ll be on a plane when all of them are happening and our fantastic intern is on vacation. So that means that I need your help to get out and take photos of each event. If you get some pictures, you can upload them directly to the site, or email them to us here. I’ll then organize the photos into stories to document the events.
Here’s what’s happening:
Saturday at 11am – Back at the turn of the last century there was a cable car that ran from downtown to the lake via Yesler Way. People would take day trips down to the lake and enjoy a lush private park and a boardwalk of attractions. One hundred years ago, that private park was handed over to the city and the Leschi Community Council is celebrating it with a day of history, food, entertainment, and nature. It all starts at 11am.
Saturday at 1pm – The Good Vibe Concert will have free food and music at Blanche Lavizzo Park, which is hidden in the valley about a block north of 2100 S. Jackson. Performances include Theoretics, Isabella Du Graf, with special guests Renaissance The Poet and DJ Rise
