This 3rd event of the Summer BBQ Series is at Alki Beach Park from 1pm to 5pm.
Picture a perfect summer day, and chances are your thoughts will take you to Alki Beach Park, a long beach strip that runs from Alki Point to Duwamish Head on Elliott Bay.
We have reserved Picnic tables #3 and 4 which are located next to the Statue of Liberty at the south (Alki Point) end of the beach.
A little History:
Alki Beach is the site of the landing of the first white settlers in Seattle on a cold, stormy day in November of 1851. Chief Seattle and his tribe greeted them and helped them build their cabin to stave off the cold, wet winter.
The Statue of Liberty, a small replica of the original "Liberty Enlightening the World" in New York City, was a gift from Reginald H. Parsons and the Seattle Council of the Boy Scouts of America in 1952. The statue has become such a symbol of liberty and courage that it became a place to mourn, to reflect, and to leave mementos after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
Friends and family are welcome to the event, cost of the BBQ is $10.
BBQ starts at noon but we will be there at 11:30 to set up, please come give us a hand.
