Jennifer Cepeda‘s fitness classes have been wildly popular for a long time. Jennifer tells us she’s been working on that since January! So big this afternoon – quite the crowd for West Seattle’s own THEM:

4 PM: Breaking weather news – it’s now partly sunny, after a mostly overcast day. …. As you wander Summer Fest, you’ll notice that the booths are a mix – some fair/festival stalwarts, but also some local businesses whose stores/offices are elsewhere in West Seattle, here to introduce themselves to more neighbors. Among them, several West Seattle sponsors – Camp Croquet is a home away from home for your dogs, with locations including Delridge and Upper Morgan:

That’s it vanessa from Camp Crockett. We also said hi to ramone other Alice from Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Real Estate Northwestwhich serves West Seattle and near offices in Jefferson Square:

Nina is at the festival for Canna Culture Shopbetween The Junction and Morgan Junction:

Longtime WSB sponsor Click! Design That Fits is having a sidewalk sale outside its shop at 4540 California SW – including these West Seattle = Best Seattle T-shirts in partnership with Alair (we reported previously on their intent)

The sidewalk display at Click! also includes earrings, part of a fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association in honor of co-founder and artist Frances Smersh. … Another WSB sponsor with a special feature for Summer Fest, Verity Credit Union (4505 California SW) has a drawing you can enter:

Not far north of us at California/Alaska, meanwhile, the trombone-playing busker is back for a second day …”

… as is what we could call the proselytizing busker. Though Summer Fest planning has been under way for months, there are always some surprises along the way. More coverage to come!
