Wear your earplugs and get ready to cheer
This Saturday night at CenturyLink Field, the University of Washington Huskies will celebrate Homecoming by taking on the unbeaten Oregon State University Beavers. Sure to be an exciting game, crowd support will likely be cranked up to high on the decibel meter. On Sunday, throngs in the thousands are expected to show up for the annual West Seattle Harvest Festival being held in the West Seattle Junction.
The Seattle Department of Transportation suggests event-goers to consider reducing their impact on the environment by leaving their cars at home and traveling via one of the many alternate modes of transportation available – Metro Transit, the West Seattle Water Taxi, the Sounder commuter train, Link light rail, car pool, bicycle or even walking, if feasible.
