Scenes from the 45th annual SeafoodFest

Thousands flocked to downtown Ballard for the first full day of the 45th annual SeafoodFest.

Saturday was a busy day, with the Festi-Bowl at the Ballard Commons skatepark all day and the famous Lutefisk Eating Contest at Bergen Place Park.

Here are some shots from the festivities on Saturday…

Overall great job by the organizers despite the City’s best attempt to time construction of the toilets to make Ballard Commons unusable during the busiest weekend of the year.

I would note that for a multi-day festival they should increase police a bit more at night as generators were stolen and gasoline siphoned from vendors at the Commons. Unfortunate and sad that people would steal from vendors providing entertainment for kids.

…and “Truth,” I’m not blaming the homeless. I don’t know who did it but I’m pointing out that it wasn’t a good thing. Is that ok?

Not blaming someone for something which you have no proof nor knowledge of what transpired is a good demeanor to have in life. 👍

Avoiding reality because your a Liberal is a bad demeanor to have in life as well. When you say homeless you must include those who do drugs. A tweaker will steal an old sock if he can get $ for dope. In case your new to Seattle or Ballard, look round. Does that sand get in your ears at times?

You should really work on your reasoning, argument and/or grammar skills.

Also, I’d like to see your evidence that generators and gas were stolen from Ballard Commons by a drug addict. I’ll wait here.

Narrator: But Truth did not wait around for terryj to post his evidence.

*you’re*

It’s ok champ, you tried hard, but here, let me help you. The word you’re looking for is “you’re” which is a contraction of you are. Grammar is fun and useful when trying to convey a point in a written argument. Liberals (you see in this case, the word ‘liberal’ should be capitalized because it is the first word in my sentence) are good at grammar. Have a good day bud, keep your chin up.

its pretty safe to say one of the tweekers that haunt the park stole the gas – maybe even the President himself – you know, the afro guy that has been parked near the library for like 8 years?

No, it isn’t safe to say that. In fact, it’s unsafe to accuse particular people of something when you have absolutely no evidence. Would it be “safe” to accuse you of threatening someone’s life? Would it be “safe” to accuse you of holding kidnapped children in your house?

Maybe the guy who owns that light blue 1950s dodge with the 4 flat tires needed some gas. That thing has been pushed all around the park for at least the last 3 years. Or maybe one of the other dozen or so car campers that are a permanent fixture of the neighborhood. But ya, could have been anyone.
