101 Things To Do in SE Seattle: #25 Watch a Parade, Play in the Street
It’s not too often you get to play in the street. This Saturday, Aug 2o, is the exception. Rainier Ave will be closed for most of the day for the Rainier Valley Heritage Parade followed by the Summer Streets Party – and boy will there be a lot to do! According to the Rainier Valley Chamber of Commerce who sponsors the event there will be, in addition to the parade, two music stages, Art in the Alley, World Board Games, bike games, a kids bike parade. Not to mention all the great stuff that is always in Columbia City – great restaurants and shops. Did I mention I will be in the parade? I didn’t?! Well, allow me to do so now. I will be in the parade with my office. It will be spectacular, and I will wave at you. What more reason do you need to come? Parade starts at 11am, the street party will go until 3pm. See you there!
