5 ‘only-in-the-Northwest’ things to do this weekend

This weekend, the entertainment schedule is full of only-in-the-Northwest events, from a Bruce Lee exhibition in the I.D. to the salmon run in Issaquah. Get out there and have some fun.

(Note: You’re invited to share your own ideas for weekend amusements with other readers in the comments thread, too.)

A new exhibition opening this weekend at the Wing Luke, “offers rare insight into Lee’s formative years in Seattle,” writes Seattle Times staffer Tan Vinh. The show features photos, poems and letters from his time on Beacon Hill, and in the U District and the Chinatown International District.

2 Egyptian Theatre re-opening

Oct. 3-5, 805 E. Pine St., Seattle; $5, free with dated receipt (Oct. 1-5) from any Capitol Hill business (siff.net).

The Egyptian, a faded but beloved moviehouse on Capitol Hill, closed its doors last year. Now SIFF has given it a facelift and will reopen it to the public with a weekend of inexpensive screenings of movies such as “Amelie,” “Kagemusha,” “O Brother Where Art Thou” and more. Bring an Oct. 1-5 receipt from a Capitol Hill business, and you can see a show for free.

3 Issaquah Salmon Days

Festival Saturday-Sunday; carnival Friday-Sunday; Front Street North from Dogwood Street to West Sunset Way and surrounding area, downtown Issaquah (salmondays.org).

Every year, Issaquah celebrates the salmon who return to spawn. Salmon hatchery tours, music, food, vendors — you can expect the whole, fishy works. This year, it’ll be extra fun with the addition of a carnival with rides in a nearby parking lot. Read Madeline McKenzie’s preview for all the details.

4 New Waterfront Festival

2 -8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 4, Waterfront Park, 1301 Alaskan Way, Seattle, free (seattlewaterfrontfest.com).

A number of businesses on the Seattle waterfront are shutting down for several months while the seawall is being rebuilt. In an effort to keep the area alive and vibrant, neighborhood businesses, nonprofits and city agencies are staging a daylong festival, culminating in a concert and light show at the Great Wheel.

Hard to believe it’s Halloween season already, but haunted house operators want to make the most of the scary season by starting early. Check out our long list of spooky (and fun) October doings — we’ll update it as the month rolls on.
