Stylin’ PhinneyWood Summer Streets

From aerialists to games in the street backed by live bands, to nude food art, the monthly Artwalk and the annual Summer Streets program in Phinney Ridge – Greenwood had something for everyone Friday evening.

Here’s a sampling of some of the scenes:

People took turns plinking away at three pianos A-1 Piano placed in the middle of the street.

A number of aerialists from Versatile Arts kept the crowd entertained.

The Seattle Fire Pipes and Drums Band plays outside the temporary Station 21. They later put in an appearance at the Phinney Ridge Farmers Market.

Fire jugglers practiced spinning weighted scarves and convinced a young girl, at right, to join in.

In a symbolic marriage of Phinney Ridge and Greenwood, Zak from Phinney Ridge and Fiona from Greenwood, got "married" during Summer Streets.

...and as the officiant explained, not only was Seattle leading the way by marrying two dogs, but it turns out that Fiona is a boy as well, giving conservative wags something to froth about.

Greenwood's resident "sensual chef," Tiberio Simone, takes a break from his work in the foreground, to decorate the forehead of an amused onlooker.
