George from Seattle Gay News will also be tabling for support of Referendum 71, and I hear he might have cookies.

And last not but not least, 12 hr notice will be in attendance, performing when he is inspired.

Plus there will be activities at many of the mini-parks on the lot.

Hungry? There will be at least one BBQ so bring some grillin’ goods. Plus, Hollow Earth Radio will have a plot in the Central Park lot and is encouraging people to stop by to share their ‘urban confessions.’

And of course Central Park isn’t the only Park(ing) Day activity on the Hill. Sustainable Capitol Hill will be creating a pocket park in the street in front of Bluebird Ice Cream and Tea Room. Meanwhile Seattle Department of Transportation will be on Summit between Denny and Olive with a cool park to collect community ideas on, well, parks. From SDOT’s e-mail to CHS:



A large map will be available for people to mark where locations they think should be turned into parks and the Crawl Space Gallery will also be participating by opening their gallery from 10AM to 5PM and starting at 1PM hosting a ‘meet and eat’ with Brendan Jansen the artist exhibiting at the Gallery.

And CHS will be out there to cover it all. See something cool? E-mail CHS or let us know on twitter @jseattle.
