Playful event planned for Central Area delivers a serious message
Sketched May 28, 2013
Several weeks ago, there was a double-shooting in front of this colorful convenience store at Martin Luther King Jr. Way South and South Jackson Street.
But there are more things happening in the Central Area than the crime that often makes the headlines. Today, you can try hopscotching for a change.
From 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., everyone in Seattle is invited to hop, skip and jump along a 1.8-mile path that starts across the street from Quick Pack (home of “the best fried chicken in town,” reads the sign) and ends at 23rd Avenue and East Union Street.
Along an eventful course, you may shop at yard sales, dance to live music, grab a lemonade or get your nails painted.
Says organizer Knox Gardner about the initiative: “If we can get together and play together, it’s easy to get on as neighbors.”
