So, Folklife is obviously this weekend, and it's super fun and you should go—if you also like drowning in a river of patchouli-scented fish guts. Just kidding! You should go! But ew! But there are few other things on the News Calendar worth checking out:
On Sunday, which will allegedly only be partly cloudy, head down to gorgeous Seward Park for the Good Karma 5K Run / 4K Walk, "Seattle's only choose your own charity fun run." Registration begins at 7:30 am.
On Memorial Day Monday, there will be the annual ceremony at Benaroya Hall's Garden of Remembrance. Other remembrance ceremonies to be found here.
And if you want to lift your spirits afterwards, why not head over to Seattle Center for that newly-constructed attraction that has everyone in a tizzy: yes, I'm talking about the Seattle Center Playway, which will feature inflatable slides, a climbing wall, and a zip line with no age restrictions. Everything is pretty cheap, and there's a fucking zip line. Ride it.
