Neighborhood Celebrations Galore
No matter which ‘hood you’re in this weekend, there is on-the-street, food-in-hand fun to be had. Seafood lovers, make your way to Ballard for the annual Seafood Fest, honoring the nabe’s maritime heritage. Up on the hill, the streets will be filled with festival goers for Queen Anne Days (with a morning fun run, kids’ parade and one heck of a sidewalk sale along Queen Anne Avenue North). Francophiles swarm Madison Park for the annual Bastille Day Bash, featuring buskers, burlesque dancers, a roving Marie Antoinette and tres bien wine tastings. And West Seattle’s Alaska Junction becomes a pedestrian paradise for its annual Summer Fest, filled with a beer garden, carnival rides for kids and beyond.
