The NW Folklife Festival got off to a mellow start Friday afternoon with mostly clear skies and light crowds. Ukulele players happily co-existed with brass bands; belly dancers with Irish cloggers. Here, the LoveBomb Go-Go Marching Band of Portland Oregon stopped near the Fisher Green Stage to entertain onlookers. Folklife continues through Monday night at Seattle Center; look here for highlights.
