Bell Street event draws neighbors of all kinds

Thursday evening’s Great City Summer Scene fostered a positive community event; a hopeful sight for the upcoming remodeling of Bell Street. Family, friends and organizations got together to talk about the future of Belltown, listen to the street sounds of Orkestar Zirkonium, and enjoy the food and drink of Skillet. The Bell St. boulevard plan was a main focus of the event, with Seattle Parks and Rec. in attendance educating citizens on the progress of the plan, and groups supporting “street activation” with free plants and art creation. 

Here are some photos from the event:
