In my last post, I enticed everyone with the invitation to our very first East Ballard Walking Tour. I had the date , but I didn’t have any more details to share. Well, I’m happy to say we now have more details!
East Ballard Walking Tour
Saturday June 13th
10 am Cafe Bambino – 405 NW 65th St
We’ll be starting the tour at 10, so if you’re gonna get coffee, make sure to get there early!
12 pm Crash Landing Pizza – 702 NW 65th St
We’ll be finishing up our tour with a well-deserved slice of pizza, thanks to Dan at Crash Landing!
We got a lot of great input from neighbors on where to go on our tour, so we thought we’d do a “dry run” the other day to see how much we could fit it in. We had grand illusions of covering the entire East Ballard area, but when we were already an hour into the walk and found ourselves still north of Market, we decided to rethink our plans.
In order to stay within 2 hours, we decided to cover NW 65th to Market, between 3rd and 14th. If this tour is successful, we’ll do a South East Ballard tour next. We also decided to do a sampling on this tour of interesting architecture, history, inspirational gardens and community projects. If this tour inspires others to do further research on any one specific topic and put together a tour on their own, just tell me and EBCA will help out! This tour is going to be very informal so that we have time to get to know our neighbors better on the walk. Bikes and trikes are welcome, however the goal is to stay together as a group throughout the tour. We’ll do a loop, so we’ll end back on NW 65th at Crash Landing Pizza. Dan, the owner, will be graciously donating a pizza slice for everyone on the tour. Thanks Crash Landing for being such a great neighborhood business!
