What’s on this weekend

Ballard feels the usual buzz of live music this weekend, but may feel sleepy due to on-and-off drizzle the whole weekend.

We see a high of 71 degrees today, with a chance of returning rain. Tomorrow, an almost sure chance of rain accompanies mid-temperatures; a similar pattern for Sunday sees a 60 percent chance of rain.

Weather-allowing, a couple outdoor movies play in Ballard this Friday night (August 28). Meanwhile, Populuxe Brewing hosts their last summer family fun day this Sunday, and a paint nite event takes place at Ballard Annex.

Watch out for downtown traffic due to PAX Seattle, which runs Friday through Monday, August 31. Also, a free Seattle Center Concert at the Mural plays this Friday with a ‘Swingin’ Roadhouse Night’ theme to end the 2015 series.
