Message from Councilmember Debra Juarez
You might have heard me or my staff talking about a District 5 arts and culture event recently, if you haven’t consider this your official invitation! This is the first ever councilmember led (and district specific) event that we are hosting.
I will be hosting a free community celebration of arts and culture in Seattle’s North-end this Saturday afternoon from 1-5pm at Hubbard Homestead Park (the one behind the Target on Northgate Way). We are partnering with the Seattle Drum School and Music Center of the Northwest to bring local live music to Hubbard Homestead Park. The event includes:
• Live music from local musicians
• Free tacos Taqueria Los Chilangos, for the first 200 people
• Cash beer garden featuring Fremont Brewing Company
• Activities for children
• Vendors and information booths – Thank you to all the city departments who are coming out!
• PokemonGo Lures
• Incredible weather forecast
• Voter registration, courtesy of The Washington Bus
Tue, Aug 2, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Corner of NE 107th Street and Alton Avenue NE
Everyone is Invited! Cups, plates, utensils, and napkins are provided. Please bring an item to share and whatever you would like to grill. If you have an extra chair-bring it too!
Our favorite locally owned, neighborhood coffee shop, CAFE LATI’S at 110th and 35th ave ne, is currently having difficulties making ends meet due to the double impact of school being out and the closure of 35thAve NE at NE110th due to the Thornton Creek Confluence project.
The purpose of this post is to encourage all who can to make a little extra effort and give Cafe Lati’s your much needed patronage, especially during the eight weeks or so until school starts again in September. Cafe Lati’s owner, Latife, is also exploring other measures with the City to encourage old and new customers alike to realize that her place is open for business. One such measure would be to change the “road closed ahead” sign at 125th and 35th to encourage people to travel to NE 110th where the detour actually starts, at least until school commences in September.
Cafe Lati’s has become an integral part of our neighborhood and it would be a shame to lose it, especially after Latife has worked so hard to get it established.
Hunger Intervention will be hosting a free summer lunch program at Nathan Hale High School this summer and are recruiting volunteers to help with all aspects of the program. You can either link to our blog post for more information or I also included a pdf of our volunteer flyer.Summer Meals Volunteer flyer

Salmon Bake at Lake City Community Center

August 3 10AM-6PM
The new footprint for our 2013 Street Festival stretches four blocks on NE 125th and wraps the fun around Albert Davis Park. On 28th Ave NE is the Food Fare. Veer right for the pony rides. Seattle Gymnastics is bringing back the mats for tumbling fun.
Follow the music into the park for family seating, the Beer Garden (opens at noon!) and live entertainment (with more seating) on the grass.
This will be a Festival like never seen before!
Vintage Car Show at Lake City Professional Center
Always a favorite at the festival, show cars start arriving at 8:30 AM to register and find their perch for the day on NE 125th and in the lot behind Lake City Professional Center. Be sure to swing by, take a look, have a chat, and for those of a certain age, reminisce among these beauties. Awards are presented at 4PM.
Rotary Kid’s Parade
Generations of kids have strutted down Lake City Way in the Kid’s Parade. Bring yours to Wells Fargo at 135th & Lake City Way at 5PM. Check back here soon for the costume categories this year!
Grand Performance Parade
Bring the family, bring dinner and sit back to enjoy the parade! Clowns and Cowboys (our own Lake City Vigilantes), Pirates, Drums and Drill Teams. It’s the final parade of the year for Seafair and we do it up right! Settle in along the route, (Lake City Way from 130th to 123rd) and enjoy.
Get involved with the Festival this year!!
