|New Pier 58 Construction to Start this Year|

Congratulations to Seattle's own Pacific Pile & Marine, selected by the city's Office of the Waterfront and Civic Projects to build the new Pier 58. Construction should begin this year. Impact on traffic is expected to be light because much of the work can be done from barges and materials can be brought in by the water too.

Pier 58 splashed down into the water after it started leaning over in 2020.

|Something old, something new...|

Love is in the air and Seattle's evolving waterfront remains a favorite destination for brides and grooms where they can find "something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue". The tradition of uniting on the waterfront is old, Pier 62 is new, time and place are borrowed, and the water is blue. Walk to the end of any pier with public access and you will discover the magic of the Sea in Seattle.

|Clipper Round the World Race in Seattle Sunday!|

The world's largest fleet of ocean sailing race yachts is approaching the end of its (rough) trans-Pacific leg, and the finish line is in sight at the mouth of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. From there, it's an 18-hour motorized cruise to downtown Seattle, so expect to start seeing the boats on Sunday at Bell Harbor Marina next to Anthony's at Pier 66. Remember, the crews on these vessels have not sailed before. They will be most appreciative of a warm welcome, which you can offer by coming to clap, whistle, and hoot from the sidewalk above the marina. Follow the boats in real-time at www.clipperroundtheworld.com/race/standingsThe Clipper Race teams are racing on the final stretch of Race 10: Sailing City · Qingdao Cup into Seattle, after a long and enduring voyage across the North Pacific Ocean. They are due to arrive at Bell Harbor Marina this weekend, with the leading yachts due to cross the finish line from Saturday afternoon. It's looking like a close finish!

|Congratulations! 26 Years Hawking Dawgs|

Sausages make the world go around! If you have any doubt, then drop by the Frankfurter hot dog stand on Pier 55 and congratulate Andy on his 26 years of devotion to serving Seattleites with sausages, including the last 10 years (exactly this month) with his partner as owners of the Frankfurter. As Andy reminded us, the stand itself goes back even further than him. Please join us in thanking Andy for his good stewardship and excellent sausages on Seattle's waterfront!
