1.8 miles of hopping fun–Saturday, June 6–in Seattle’s Central District! Hopscotch C.D. –in its 3rd year–has become a local tradition with hundreds of Seattlites hopscotching their way around my neighborhood. Join the action which starts at 10:00 a.m. and continues all the way up to 8:00 p.m.
The almost two-mile temporary path is placed on the sidewalk three days before the event, using giant stencils and a “chalks” made out of cornstarch, a dash of flour and sugar and bit of food coloring. After three or four rains, they disappear. I’m hoping for sunny weather over the next few weeks.
Here’s a map with this year’s route, which starts at 23rd and E. Union, heads down Union to 18th and turns south, and finishes on Jackson at 28th Ave. S.
When you legs feel like they’re ready to give out, head on over to Centerstone (18th and Cherry), between 3:30 to 8:00 p.m. for the carnival–and beer garden. Or visit the lemonade stands and yard sales that will spring up like dandelions throughout the day, all around the neighborhood.
Hopscotch C.D. also has a Facebook page. The weather forecast shows temperatures around 80-degrees and clear skies, so there are no excuses. Come join the fun!
