headline2The Rainier Beach Merchant’s Association is hosting its 4th annual art walk this weekend. Unlike last year, there will be events both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday, September 6th from 10am to 6pm will feature a free family friendly festival on S. Henderson Street with Art, Music, Dance and other activities. Sunday, September 7th, will feature cultural and heritage events throughout the Rainier Beach neighborhood from 12pm to 4pm. Full details at their webpage and facebook page.  The activities center around Rainier and Henderson, about half a mile east of Rainier Beach Station.  The weather is supposed to be nice and it’s a great opportunity to use a station and see a neighborhood that most people simply pass through.  Along with art and entertainment, food trucks will be on site and I’ll once again recommend the nearby reasonably priced and delicious King Donuts & Terikayi.

Metro routes 7 and 8 will be on event reroutes from approximately 7am to 6pm (click the route number for Service Advisory).
