'Wallybug' sports a new coat of paint

June 27th, 2011 · No Comments

It was a great day on Sunday – perfect for the annual painting of the Wallybug at N. 49th St. and Burke.

Organizers took a chance on the weather and decided to wash the bug the same day as the painting. Generally the bath is given on Saturday, followed by the Sunday painting.

Several dozen neighbors gathered to help paint the six-year-old bug.

Even the kids picked up paint rollers and helped out.

After the painting, everyone enjoyed a great neighborhood potluck, which included a roasted pig that was cooked in a China Box while people worked.
