yay! so this past week has been Seattle Sandfest! Which may sound silly to those who've never been. I must say, at first I was a scoffer, and then I got to see the amazingness that is SEATTLE SANDFEST! The sandfest is a fun event hosted at Westlake Park across from Westlake Center
And they have lots of booths around handing out free stuff, and some stuff that's not free to help raise money for the boys and girls club in seattle. But the two biggees of the sandfest are the live music on the main stage and the amazing sand castles built by teams of people! These are some from the past years:
I mean seriously!! These people go ALL OUT!! When I was working on Friday, I volunteered to clean the front doors just so i could hear the band playing fun songs like "Rock, Steady" and "She's A Brick House" and i was just dancing and cleaning it was so fun! There were old fat guys dancing without their shirts on which was super funny! And this old chick in this green outfit with a lime green fish net thing over her granny skirt. It was so fun to watch everyone!
I decided to bring my camera on Saturday to take some pics, but it wasn't as exciting as the day before... mainly because it was a jazz band playing and not a lot of people were into it. And it was kinda early. But here they are anyway! Enjoy!
this is wear i work downtown by the way!
Here's some pics of the fun shenanigans around the main stage:
They also had a spot where kids could build their own sandcastles!
And now... the sandfest creations of 2008:
