First Weekend of Spring Brings People to the Streets

SEATTLE - Two marches are planned for the coming weekend, one on Saturday in Magnolia Village and another on Sunday in downtown Seattle. The Seattle Department of Transportation warns motorists to plan on possible traffic delays associated with the events.

On Saturday morning, March 21, as many as 1,750 participants will mark the beginning of baseball season by marching in the Magnolia Little League Parade. Staging will start at 8:30 a.m. at the intersection of Montavista Place West/Westmont Way West and Rosemont Place West. The parade will get underway at 10:30 a.m. moving east on West McGraw Street to 32nd Avenue West, then heading north on 32nd Avenue to the Magnolia Playfield. Seattle Police will escort the parade which should conclude by 12 noon.

On Sunday, March 22, an Anti-War Rally and March with approximately 120 participants will gather at Cal Anderson Park on Capital Hill and begin the march at 1:00 p.m. With a police escort, the marchers will exit the park on 11th Avenue; head south on 11th to East Pine Street; west on Pine to Broadway; north on Broadway to East Olive Way; west on Olive to East Denny Way; west on Denny to Stewart Street; west on Stewart to Seventh Avenue; south on Seventh Avenue to Pine Street; west on Pine to Third Avenue; south on Third to Union Street; west on Union to First Avenue; north on First to Pike Street; west on Pike Street to Pike Place; north on Pike Place to Virginia Street; and west on Virginia into Victor Steinbrueck Park.

The Seattle Department of Transportation builds, maintains and operates Seattle's $12 billion transportation infrastructure. To further Mayor Nickels' goal to get Seattle moving, the department manages short- and long-term investments in streets, bridges, pavement and trees, that better connect the city with the region.
