On National Night Out Against Crime, why not celebrate community with a favorite American past time: MINI-GOLF!!! This year we’ve wrangled at least 12 holes for your golfing pleasure, all created by artists and groups who love South Park, Seattle and mini-golf! The event starts at 6:00 pm Tuesday August 4th 2015 and runs until about 8:30pm. See event page here:
This event is FREE, and the FREE food is provided by the South Park Community Center, and FREE live music is provided by Barlon Mandó and Randy on Rose as DJ! Free Golf holes provided by a generous grant from the Office of Arts & Culture Seattle and organized by South Park Arts.
Please head to the 800 block of S. Thistle Street (for GPS purposes, dial in 801 S. Thistle or the South Park Community Center) grab a scorecard and play a round. When you’re done, use the ballot on the back to vote for the best hole, and the best dressed golfer! Put on your craziest clashing Caddyshack plaids and argyle to get into the spirit, and you may be voted top
South Park Arts will have T-Shirts, can koozies and stickers for sale at this event. Cash appreciated.
