It was moved up on the calendar this year, so just want to make sure you don’t miss out on Ballard’s annual Seafoodfest Weekend. Get anywhere near Ballard and you can’t miss it, taking over Market street and nearby side streets. With temperatures in the 80s, it’s going to be a full-blown summer celebration. Look for me in the Norwegian tent (where the heck else would I be?) right on Market Street, I understand. Also, big doings on Saturday. Last I heard, I was emceeing the Lutefisk eating contest and the Hot Dog eating contest. It’s not easy being the emcee and videotaping the competition, but somehow I pulled it off last year.
Here’s some video of last year’s competition.
And here’s what it looks like when you’re the emcee AND you’re videotaping.
Hope you can stop by. Promise not to make you eat any lutefisk.
