Summer Streets 2013 are back and even better. Four events are being held this year in Alki, Ballard, Rainier Valley and PhinneyWood. Something special happens during Summer Streets. A road—normally a space for vehicles—is transformed into a place. This unleashes creativity and energy within our neighborhoods. The street becomes a public plaza where people celebrate, dance, create art, play games, get to know their neighbors and enjoy their community. Events are scheduled for:
Alki—Sunday, May 19 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Ballard—Friday, May 31 from 3:30 to 7 p.m.
PhinneyWood —Friday, August 9 from 6 to 9:30 p.m.
Rainier Valley—Saturday, August 17 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Celebrating its sixth year, Summer Streets has quickly become a tradition as a special part of summers in Seattle. Local merchants and artists work together months in advance to make each event even better each year. Neighbors, families and friends mark their calendars so they don’t miss it. Get more details at www.seattle.gov/summerstreets and follow us on Facebook for the latest updates on activities and participants.
Come take part in all the activities these events have to offer, like bike repair, mural art, live music, dance performances, kids crafts, skateboarding, community programs and much MUCH more!
