Salmon Homecoming

The Native Vote Washington team will be down on the waterfront at the Seattle Aquarium and Waterfront Park this Saturday to register new voters, update current voter registrations, sell our nifty T-shirts, answer questions and tell fortunes.  Please come on down.  The Salmon Homecoming itself is a fantastic event put on each year by the non-profit Salmon Homecoming Alliance whose mission is to restore and protect the salmon.   The Homecoming always takes place in the fall to celebrate and welcome the return of the salmon from the ocean to the Pacific Northwest’s rivers and streams where they will spawn.  The Homecoming always features arts and crafts, dances, educational forums, ceremonies, carvings, kids activities, music and lots of food.  And it’s all right down on the waterfront with glorious views of the Puget Sound, Alki beach, the Olympic Mountains, and the ferries.   The Salmon Homecoming is this weekend, starting off with a forum and ceremony Thursday evening in the Aquarium, and then all-day activities on the waterfront Friday through Sunday.  Agenda is here.

And since it’s Homecoming weekend, we are dieting furiously so we can squeeze into our gowns and rental tuxes.  We can only hope that this year, the varsity Salmon bring home the big trophy so we can really let loose in the Gymnasium Saturday night!
