Stroll on Alki – New Year’s Eve  &  New Year’s Day

Join us for our traditional New Year’s Eve event, which includes an evening stroll along Alki Beach for great views of the city lights of downtown Seattle, as well as a walk through the neighborhoods to enjoy the Christmas lights in West Seattle.  Route goes past Luna Park, along Harbor Ave, and returns to the start point via California Ave.

Then return on New Year’s Day for another walking event, this one in the morning, also featuring a stroll along Alki for those fantastic views, but with a different route through the neighborhood for getting to and from the beach.
