Crazy honkin’ bands in Ballard

It’s called Honk Fest West, a “radical marching band festival” that promises to overflow the streets of Ballard tonight and this weekend with “the lively sound of horn players and drummers.” Bands have come in from five states and Canada for the event. Ballard’s Connor Byrne’s Pub, Mr. Spots Chai House, New York Fashion Academy and Ballard Jam House are hosting bands Friday night (schedule). And on Sunday, you’ll see “open jam” processions at Ballard Commons Park (across from the library) as well as Bergen Place (site of the pillow fight) from 12-3 p.m. Don’t say we didn’t warn ya!
