Seattle Summer Parkways in Ballard this Saturday

August 25, 2016 6:38am


This Saturday Seattle Summer Parkways returns to Ballard in conjunction with the Sustainable Ballard Festival for one, big ‘ol neighborhood party. And while we are a little hurt that these Seattle Summer Parkways never come to Green Lake (come on guys, why not!?) we are willing to drive the few miles to Ballard for a fun event.

The festivities start at 11am, with a slew of attractions available along a car-free route ranging from Sunset Hill Park down to Ballard Ave. Nearly five miles of roadway will be transformed into parkways with activities:

Fun, fencing, face-painting, lotion and body butter demos, rolling zorba balls.

Food, including fried chicken from Ezell’s Express, free ice cream from CityScoop. and chocolatey delights from Hot Cakes

Fitness, including free bike rentals from Pronto, martial arts demos, Zumba, Pilates and a fitness boot camp.
