Spotlight on Ballard – 2014 Weekend Concerts at the Locks


One of Seattle’s great destinations is the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks in the Ballard neighborhood. The locks connect the Lake Washington Ship Canal with the Puget Sound and have been in operation since 1916. During the summer you can also see the salmon travel up the fish ladder in the underwater viewing room.

Also on the ground is the Carl S. English Jr. Botanical Garden. After you are finished visiting the beautiful garden, bring a blanket or lawn chair and relax at a free concert. This summer the 25th Annual Concert Series begins Thursday May 29th, at 7:15 PM with the Seattle Civic Band – Marching music and Broadway songs. All other concerts occur Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00 PM. Concerts run through September 1st. Get there early to stake out your spot and enjoy!
