Summer BBQ Series #3 - Alki Beach Park

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 #1 and 2 which are located next to the Statue of Liberty at the south (Alki Point) end of the beach, and there you'll find the monument to the arrival of the first white settlers on November 13, 1851.

 

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, and it is highly appreciated if you can bring extra supplies of BBQ items, e.g. plates, cups, utensils, napkins, coolers, food…

Please tell us what you plan on bringing when you RSVP.

Cost of the BBQ is $10.

BBQ starts at 1pm but we will be there from 12:00pm to set up, you are very welcome to be there early and give us a hand.

- Sign in with the event hosts and get your wristband.

- There will be all you can eat food and drinks!!!

This event is cross posted with other groups.

* We need volunteers! Anyone would like to help out please get in touch with me*

    You can get the water taxi but then you will have to walk from the docking station to the event. The only bus that goes to alki on the weekend is the No 50, which unfortunately does not go downtown. I believe you can either transfer at one of the light rail stations or take route C from 3rd and pike to Alaska Junction
