SeafoodFest July 11 & 10

You read the headline correctly, the Ballard SeafoodFest will be held on July 11th & 10th. We reported earlier that the dates for the annual festival were changing for the first time decades, but what we didn’t know was that organizers were also changing the days around.

The banner was hung on Tuesday afternoon in preparation for next weekend’s event. “All was well from the Market Street side, but when we looked at the Leary side, we gasped. Oh dear— the dates read: July 11 & 10. Oh the egg on our faces!” Cynthia Payne emailed us, “Should we rush it back to the sign company? Should we try to scrape the numbers off ourselves? No, we decided, we changed the dates, maybe that includes switching Saturday and Sunday. Maybe it includes moving 11 before 10. Perhaps it’s just Ballard silliness, but maybe it’s REALLY all about time travel.”

Updated: The sign company who made the sign has fixed the mistake. The sign now reads “July 10 & 11.”

Organizers are still in need of volunteers. “We really need volunteers this year, there are so many new activities at SeafoodFest, we’re almost doubling the 200+ volunteers from last year,” Joanne Orsucci the Volunteer Coordinator emailed us.

The Ballard Chamber is such an ass backwards organization, I think the sign is appropriate.

P.S. Is this really news worthy? Even for Ballard?

I’m guessing it’s the sign company that messed up here.

I do remember it was 103 sometime in August last year – I say that’s ungodly hot.

The heatwave last year hit on the Sunday of SeafoodFest. So yes, it was really, really hot.

I’d give anything for ungodly hot. The suit I wore to work today I wore to work in December.

That’s not right.
