Mr. Roger likes to keep his eyes peeled for community-based events around Seattle. Who doesn’t love a good neighborhood party? For residents, a neighborhood gathering offers the opportunity to learn about “the people in your neighborhood”, make new friends, and foster community pride. For non-residents (or resident wanna-bes), an event provides an excellent way to get to know the area and its inhabitants.

As a new feature of the blog, I’ll be posting neighborhood happenings as they pop up across my radar screen. Here are a few that I’ve collected:

Ballard Seafood Fest – July 13 & 14

2 days of food and entertainment celebrating Ballard and its Scandinavian heritage in the heart of Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood

Wedgwood Art Festival – July 13 & 14

Art, music, and fun in Seattle’s Wedgwood neighborhood

Chinatown’s Dragonfest – July 13 & 14

Dancing, taiko drumming, and more at this annual celebration in Seattle’s International District

And, as always, Mr. Roger wants to hear what you think about local events around the Puget Sound. What are you doing this weekend?
