PhinneyWood Summer Streets will make Friday, August 9, a huge, family-friendly party along Greenwood Avenue North. This free event opens the city’s largest public space – its streets – so people can walk, bike, roll, run, skip and shop – without having to watch out for cars! And what a great time it is going to be. PhinneyWood Summer Streets combines with the monthly art walk to bring you boundless amounts of music, art and great food.
Ayron Jones is playing soulful music at Valentine’s Seattle; TASTY is hosting their fourth Annual Art ‘n’ Craft Fair; skateboarding experience can be gained with the Maryhill Ratz; and 826 Seattle and the UW Astronomy Department are partnering to set up an awesome Portable Planetarium that fits up to 28 people at one time. Want more? Naked City Brewery is hosting their second Annual Soccer Tournament—a fundraiser for Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center—on Saturday and throwing a pre-tournament party during Summer Streets. Volunteers of America will also be building cool sculptures out of healthy canned food donations given to the Greenwood Food Bank. There will be tons of fun for everyone.
Celebrating its sixth year, Summer Streets has quickly become a tradition and a special part of summers in Seattle. Local merchants and artists work together months in advance to make each event even better every year. Neighbors, families and friends mark your calendars so you don’t miss out. Remaining 2013 events are scheduled for:
PhinneyWood—Friday, August 9 from 6 to 9:30 p.m.
Rainier Valley—Saturday, August 17 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
