Take over the streets

The first Summer Street event is only 4 weeks away; and we need volunteers.  So if you have ever been secretly wishing to take over the street – now is your chance.   Celebrate Seattle Summer Streets is a series of four events occurring between the months of April and September that open up streets for people to have fun, celebrate the spirit and personality of their community and support local businesses.

Here are some fun ways to volunteer – you can sign up here:

Community Organizer:  Do you live in Ballard or Alki/West Seattle and are the kind of person that can walk into a neighborhood store and say ‘ can we put up a poster in your window? Say, your pet store could host a pet parade at Summer Street… (etc).”  Or can you at least email all your friends who would love this and create a “buzz?”

Fun Creator:  Do you want to organize that pet parade ? or create a “Free Store”? or just a hopscotch game ?  It is your street, how do you want to play?

Intersection Guardian:  The Day of, we need you to make sure cars don’t drive into where people are playing.  While you are at your post; you can invite those drivers to leave their car behind and come play.

We have even more ideas on our volunteer page on the Summer Streets website.  Let us know how you want to take over the street……
