Weekend: kiddie carnival, solar walk, free pizza



First, a correction. We posted last week that the monthly Wallingford Walk would take place last Saturday. Perhaps we can blame the mistake on our overheated zeal to connect the forecast 90+ temps to the solar-themed walk. We apologize for any inconvenience the error may have caused. And on with the weekend:

This month’s Wallingford Walk will focus on the sun.

We will visit three neighborhood homes that have installed photovoltaic solar to produce electricity or solar thermal for hot water. Yes, solar works in Seattle; you just have to do it right. We will get a chance to learn what they did right and what not to do. And we will get a chance to hear about the Wallingford Solar Initiative to install solar power at Gas Works and Hamilton International Middle School.

Meet at 10 a.m. at Tully’s. The walk will be about 90 minutes.

Solid Ground hosts Pirates and Pipsqueaks, an old fashioned carnival that benefits services for homeless kids. The fun lasts from noon to 5 p.m. at 1501 N. 45th St.

Enjoy a lovely summer afternoon with the Seafair Pirates, the Seattle Derby Brats, carnival games and live music!

Vintage carnival games will include Dunk the Pirate, a Pirate Bounce House, Walk the Plank, Cupcake Walk, Pirate Wiffle Ball, Ducks in the Pond, Balloon Darts, Bottle Ring Toss, and lots more.

Kids can enter the Pirate Costume Contest and pose for photos with the Seafair Pirates. The Seattle Derby Brats will perform roller skating demos! See a real pirate ship, win fabulous prizes, enjoy live music, face painting, food and fun!

This exciting community event is sponsored by Not A Number Cards & Gifts, the Seafair Pirates, Seattle’s Child, Starbucks, Trophy Cupcakes, the Wallingford Chamber of Commerce, and the Wallingford Community Council. All proceeds will benefit services for homeless children at Broadview Shelter & Transitional Housing, a program of Solid Ground.

Sunday is the last day to get a free pizza from Tutta Bella at 4411 Stone Way North. The local chain is having a very good couple of weeks. First it was named Independent Pizzeria of the Year (the honor that inspired the pizza giveaway), then owner Joe Fugere met with President Obama. One free pie per table.
