Two community events at Green Lake

November 18th, 2016 by Mike

Luminaries at Green Lake Dec. 10th.

The annual Pathway of Lights returns to Green Lake from 4:30-7:30 p.m. “rain or shine”.

From Seattle Parks and Recreation:

Join thousands of families, friends and neighbors for this beloved Seattle tradition. Travel the 2.8-mile path around the lake, taking in the warm glow of the luminaria, music and refreshments. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own lights and candles to add to the ambiance.

For more information visit their Facebook page.

Join Hands Around Green Lake Saturday Nov. 19th from 12:30-2 p.m.

Inspired by the Hands Around Lake Merritt solidarity protest in Oakland, this event aims to get enough people (2,700, they say) to join hands all the way around Green Lake (2.8 miles) in “a single loop of unity…against racism, sexism, homophobia, and Islamophobia.”

Local musicians will perform at four sites around the lake:
