Running Through the Sprinkler, Seattle Style

Hello Seattle, locals and guests alike!  

Guess what?  90 degrees is a fairly uncommon occurance in this town.  Some might call it rare, even in this era of global warming.  So with this week’s forecast of 90 echoing in our eardrums, stop what you are doing.  

Stop.  Right now.  Seriously.  Time to dump the plans.

Do something quintessentially Seattle today. Get yourself to Seattle’s back yard sprinkler, otherwise known as the International Foundation at the Seattle Center.

Just about every local Seattle school kid has a story of getting drenched at the Fountain.  Pack yourself a picnic, or snacks, and something to drink.  If that feels like too much trouble, don’t.  There are no rules here on how to do this, and food is available on-site, at the Armory.

The fountain alternates between a driblle, a gentle arch, and jet bursts shooting water 70 feet in the air.  Your job is to time your journey to the dome without getting a face full of water.  

It’s a short walk, a very quck Lyft ride, or a little jaunt on the closest LimeBike from most of our properties. Pretend you’re a kid again, or bring your kids and show them how its done.  

You won’t regret it, I promise.
