Mayor praises Ballard for post-Super Bowl politeness on Twitter

Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on February 3rd, 2014

Twitter feeds have been jam packed today with the hashtag #HowSeattleRiots, describing the polite and considerate way in which Seahawks fans celebrated after the Super Bowl win. Our very own celebrations in Ballard, complete with lack of jay-walking and all, have been featured all over the internet today.

The celebration by the crowd at Market and Leary even drew special attention from Mayor Ed Murray. He posted the tweet below in response to a video of fans in full celebration mode, while at the same time obeying the law and only crossing to high five when the pedestrian light flashed green.

The Stranger also featured a post on the post Super Bowl celebrations in our ‘hood commenting on the “revelers in Ballard rioting without jaywalking.”

The My Ballard team was there to witness the joy, excitement and the extreme amount of high fives exchanged as fans crossed Market St (only when the light was green of course). Check out some photos and a video below:

Overall, it was a fantastic victory for Seattle and a fantastic night of celebration in Ballard. So, in closing, as Mayor Murray said, “good job Ballard!”
