Hundreds of people joined the Alki Summer Streets Party on Sunday, May 19, following the West Seattle 5K Run/Walk, West Seattle High School’s fundraiser event. It was cool along the waterfront, but the weather held up for visitors to enjoy the streets by walking, biking, skateboarding and playing along Alki Avenue SW.
Our vision of a Seattle street where people can walk and bike more became a reality for six hours. The activities ranged from art by Alki Arts Fair to a musical performance by local favorite Sarey Savey to Zumba with instructor Jennifer Cepeda to West Seattle’s largest costumed bike parade (organized by the Alki Beach Creeps)! Restaurants bustled with business and people enjoyed the sound of laughter and the waves.
There is still more to come! Come see what Seattle is like without traffic, pollution and noise at these three events.
