Thousands of walkers and runners will head out from Volunteer Park Saturday morning to raise thousands of dollars to support Capitol Hill-based Lifelong’s community health and service programs. Details on the 27th Walk are below. You can find out how to support the effort at seattleaidswalk.org and head out on the course to cheer on participants or join the march.

The 5K course starts at Volunteer Park and heads south along 12th Ave to E Union Street. There will be a rest stop at the midpoint in front of the Lifelong Thrift Store and Administration (Annex) Building, where C89.5 will be playing music and keeping energy levels high. The route then turns back to Volunteer Park along Broadway. Following the AIDS Walk, there will be a post-walk picnic at Volunteer Park. The celebration includes food and drinks, a photo booth, and KEXP DJ Riz Rollins spinning on-stage. There will also be free HIV testing and a number of community service organizations on-site.
UPDATE: Also, an FYI about the planned DecibelFest party at Broadway/Pine — due to weather, it’s moved down the Hill:
Today’s dB in the Park event has moved to Re-Bar
Due to poor weather conditions, the 10th Annual Decibel Festival’s dB in the Park event, will be moving to one of Seattle longest running and most respected nightclubs, Re-Bar (1114 Howell St).
This FREE 21+ event will be running 12PM to 7PM and will feature deejay performances from two of the West Coast’s most respected house, deep house and nu disco artists (Poolside and Jeno) with support from Phidelity, Michael Manahan and Natural Magic.
