Thank you Alki and West Seattle friends and neighbors for letting us come out and play on your street!

There was electricity in the air as the morning kicked off with the sound of the pistol at 9:30 am signifying the start of the West Seattle 5K Run/Walk. Around 1400 runners and walkers joined the race, 100 people more than last year! You may see the race results at

As the West Seattle 5K came to a close, the music kept pumping as the party transitioned to the Alki Summer Streets event, with a full street closure of Alki Avenue SW between 56th Avenue SW and 63rd Avenue SW. Vendors and community groups lined the street, and the stage sponsored by the Alki Community Council was set up.

It was a fun filled afternoon with lots of activities: face painting, henna tattooing, skateboarding, roller skating, bike riding, chalk drawing, dog walking – all on the street!!!
