My Ballard readers celebrate April Fools’ Day in style

Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on April 1st, 2014

Happy April Fools’ Day! This morning we received a few fantastic April Fools’ in our inbox and thought we should share one of our favorites with you.

In light of the development situation in Ballard, we thought readers would appreciate this one!

Demo Team Gets The Wrong House

Imagine the surprise awaiting a Ballard resident upon her return from work. It seems there was a mis-communication and the wrong home was torn down between the time she left for the office and when she got back.

The contractor apologized profusely but there was a dyslexic error on the work order.

April Fools!

Thanks to all who emailed in their great stories! Do you experience an interesting April Fool in Ballard? Email it in to
