Tickle the ivories, find the pig and watch art come alive

 

Ever wonder what would happen if the city’s largest public space – its streets – were opened up so people can walk, bike, roll, run, skip and shop – without having to watch out for cars? Friday, August 10 from 6 to 10 p.m. in the Phinney Ridge and Greenwood neighborhood you can find out. Summer Streets is back and we are partnering with the Phinney Neighborhood Association for some good old fashioned fun.

This free event includes something for everyone. Here is a sample of activities:

We are bringing back Seattle’s Largest Canned Food Pyramid too! Last year we collected over 2,500 cans of healthy food for the Greenwood Food Bank. Plan on bringing your donations to Summer Streets and we’ll build an even bigger pyramid this year. For a map of the PhinneyWood Summer Streets event area, or to see pictures from last year visit www.seattle.gov/transportation/summer_green.htm. To follow the latest developments like us on Facebook. And don’t forget to mark your calendars for the Rainier Valley Heritage Parade and Summer Streets Party on Saturday, August 18.
