Put Yourself in the Picture of Seattle History

Okay, so maybe libraries aren’t your thing. Maybe you just can’t handle the not inconsiderable hassle of trying to find parking in Ballard*, yet would like to show off your civic pride. Or perhaps you just can’t get enough of Mayor Greg Nickels. Head on down to the celebration of the opening of the new City Hall Civic Plaza Saturday, May 14 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., on the new Plaza at Fourth Avenue and Cherry Street downtown.

In attendance will be Mayor Nickels, members of the Seattle City Council, the Washingtong Middle School Jazz Band, the TT Minor Marching Band, the Mariner Moose, and a variety of cultural performing arts groups. Also in attendance will be a photographer who will capture a group photo of everyone present which will then be placed in a time capsule to be buried under the plaza and reopened in 50 years.

If that’s not incentive enough, they’re also offering free popcorn, poetry readings, and free umbrellas to the first 300 kids to arrive.

*Of course you could always take the bus. Ballard has almost as much regular service as Downtown.
