On the List | Flowering trees, Moisture Festival Buckaroos, Seattle Deaf Film Fest

BuckaroosNot everything fun on Capitol Hill is being re-developed. Here’s a line-up of events worthy of an early spring weekend in what remains Seattle’s most interesting neighborhood.

  • Blossoms: Don’t wait too long. The flowering trees on some of the Hill’s teen-numbered streets are in top form. Try the avenues north of E Aloha for a lovely, blossom-blanketed stroll.
  • The Moisture Festival’s Capitol Hill presence is in full swing this weekend with burlesque and these hunky buckaroos. Buckaroos USA perform Thursday night at the Broadway Performance Hall. Full Moisture schedule is here.
  • Pre-K plan: Also Thursday, meet with City of Seattle officials and Mayor Ed Murray to talk universal pre-school. Starts at 6 PM at Garfield Community Center.
  • Neighborhood summit: Described as a “boat show” for city services, City Hall is gathering neighborhood activist types and those wanting to be more involved at the Seattle Center for a neighborhood-focused confab.
