Viking Days and Parade

Published by under Shilshole Neighbors

Ballard’s historical Scandinavian heritage is celebrated each year on the 17th of May.  Norwegian Constitution Day is the official National Day of Norway. The day is referred to simply as “Syttende Mai” (17th of May) and Ballard hosts a great parade!  Poulsbo, another local Scandinavian community, easy to access by boat, also has a parade and celebration.

Great local family fun!  Check out the links for more details…

Opening Day at Montlake Cut-May 4th

Published by under Shilshole Neighbors

The Seattle Yacht Club has put on an Opening Day of Boating Season Parade since 1920.  It’s a great event to take the family to and sit along the Montlake Cut or, take your boat in and tie to the log boom on the north side or anchor in the south-side viewing area!  In the morning are the Windermere Cup crew races.  The boat parade is from noon to 3.  Since the Cut is closed Sat. til after the parade, most boaters arrive Thur or Fri to get a spot and stay til Sunday to come home. It’s quite a show at the locks as they all lock through trying to leave the lake Sat eve or Sunday!

Fisheries Supply Spring Swap Meet

Sat, April 6th, 5am to 1pm

What to Expect:

A maritime flea market, full of boating goods, old parts, and new parts, outboards, buoys, dock line, coolers, heaters, chain, clothing, and so much more. Die-hard bargain boaters have been known to arrive the night before to stake out a good parking spot, although sellers are not allowed to use the lower tier of the upper parking lot (closest to the store entrance). In addition to the hundreds of boaters buying, selling and trading boating equipment, Fisheries will be offering great pricing on clearance, discontinued, overstock, scratch and dent products, and last seasons clothing.
