July 1st, Seattle, WA: It’ll be one heck of a weekend in Georgetown: SubPop Records is having their 25th Anniversary Silver Jubilee festival in the neighborhood on Saturday, July 13th, and on Sunday the 14th, the neighborhood will host it’s annual Georgetown Garden Walk, featuring Cross Pollinate of arts and special events (see link for listing of participants).
With all this hoopla, the Art Attack art walk will be in full force! We’re still on for July 13th, 6 – 9 pm, and for those brave enough to mosh their way through the SubPop crowds, you’ll be in for a treat! Give yourself lots of time to stroll the streets (literally): with Airport Way South (from Corson S to Bailey S) closed off for the festival, you’ll need time to park or Metro your way into the hippest neighborhood in Seattle.
Please Note: The Art Ride bus will not be in service this time around. You’ll have to hoof it!
