Two big events at nearby neighborhoods

By master · July 22nd, 2009 · 1 Comment

Fremont has hosted some big events this summer, but two nearby neighborhoods will be drawing large crowds over the next few days. As many as 10,000 people are expected to attend the annual Seafair parade over in Greenwood this evening (Wednesday). The parade begins at 95th St. and heads south on Greenwood Avenue, then west on 85th St. to 6th Ave. And in Ballard this weekend, 60,000 people are expected to attend Seafood Fest, a two-day event with salmon, music and cultural favorites like the lutefisk eating contest.

Update: PhinneyWood shot tons of the photos of the SeaFair parade.

    Seafood Fest is produced by the Ballard Chamber of Commerce.

    The Ballard Chamber of Commerce just joined in a lawsuit — against the city of Seattle — to stop the “missing link” bike trail that SDOT approved.

    If you favor the trail and safer conditions for biking through industrial Ballard, please don't support the Ballard Chamber of Commerce and their events and their member businesses!
