August 6th, 2010 · Comments

Besides the Blue Angels and the hydros on Lake Washington, there’s plenty to do in our neck of the woods this weekend.

The Phinney Farmers Market runs from 3-7 p.m. today in the lower parking lot of the Phinney Neighborhood Center, 6532 Phinney Ave. N.

Just down the hill at Green Lake, several events are scheduled through the weekend.

Tonight, From Hiroshima to Hope is an evening of remembrance that culminates with lanterns floated onto the lake, from 6-9:30 p.m. on the northwest shore of Green Lake, south of the Bathhouse Theater.

The 2010 Freestyle Disc World Championships are already underway and go through Sunday at Green Lake. According to the event’s Facebook page, it’s all “about acrobatic moves and tricks with attitude and athleticism performed while an international panel of judges looks on. Beyond the competition, the sidelines will see intense spontaneous play (“jamming”) as the stars of the sport practice their routines, and get their groove on!”

Also on Saturday at Green Lake, more than 1,000 rowers from Washington, Oregon, Idaho and British Columbia will compete in the 49th Annual Green Lake Summer Rowing Regatta.

In Magnolia, the annual Summer Festival started today with arts and crafts, food vendors, a beer garden, and a pie eating contest in the ball fields below the Magnolia Community Center. At 7 tonight there’s a talent show, then at dusk it’s movie night, with “Galaxy Quest.” Tomorrow’s Kiddie Parade starts at 10:30 a.m., followed by the main parade at 11 a.m., baby races at 12 p.m. at the Magnolia Garden Center, and bands and other entertainment throughout the day.

Just northeast of Greenwood, the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) is hosting a historical walking tour of Evergreen-Washelli Cemetery at 10 a.m. Saturday.

And on Sunday, you can take part in shapenote singing at Woodland Park United Methodist Church, 302 N. 78th St., at 6:30 p.m.
