This weekend in Queen Anne

August 28th, 2009 by Thea

It’s a busy weekend on the hill with so much to do and oh, so little time.

Saturday is going to the arts, with “Uptown Stroll” and “Art in the Alley” – two opportunities to check out what local artists are up to these days (and guess what, both are free!)

Uptown Stroll: A Festival of Art in Action” will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow at Counterbalance Park, located at the intersection of Roy Street and Queen Anne Ave. N.

In the afternoon head over to “Art in the Alley” located in (you guessed it!) the alley between 9th and 10th avenues, at 1610 10th Avenue West (open from 2-6 p.m.).

Or, for an early start (11:30 a.m.), participate in a pub crawl for a good cause.  Join “Ring Around the Needle” and help raise money for the Melissa Erickson Foundation, the UW basketball star suffering with ALS. More information here.

Also on Saturday hit the Queen Anne library (open until 6 p.m.), because as of Sunday Seattle Public Libraries will be closed until September 8th! (Some locations will be open for a few hours on Sunday, like the Central and Ballard locations. For a list of locations and their hours, click here.) Thanks to Queen Anne Mama for the update!

Don’t forget, the Aurora Bridge will be down to one lane of traffic in each direction Sunday night, from 5 p.m. to midnight.

And if you have any extra time during this jam-packed weekend, why not try one of Queen Anne’s historic stairway treks?

Enjoy the weekend!
