Capitol Hill knows how to block party. For the 2012 Seattle Night Out celebration of all things neighbors and streets-for-people, CHS visited with the families, friends and fun gathered just above Cal Anderson Park at 11th and Denny. It’s a central location, core to the Hill — and with Capitol Hill Station set to open in 2016, destined for a fantastic amount of change in the next few years.
Images of what we found, below, as well as a few pictures from some of the other Night Out events around the neighborhoods. If you have images you’d like to share, drop us a note or let us know on Facebook.
And then it got weird…

The Melrose Promenade bbq was potluck-style — and likely full of more new ideas for changing the neighborhood above I-5.

On First Hill, neighbors played bingo in the street.
And the fire department included 10th and Hamlin in its Night Out rounds.
UPDATE: CHS has more from the City Market bbq:
UPDATE: Resident Tim Peter has graciously allowed CHS to share these pictures he took at the 15th Ave E Night Out festivities and the celebration of 100 years of Angel’s Shoe Repair in Seattle.
UPDATE: Photographer Brian Buck shared these images from 11th Ave between Thomas and Harrison with CHS. Even big kids like fire trucks. More here.
