Crossing Kirkland Event Recap
It was great to see many neighbors at Kirkland's first annual Crossing Kirkland event on the Cross Kirkland Corridor on September 9th. The event consisted of activity stations and food trucks spread out along the trail, each station hosted by a neighborhood. There were seven neighborhoods that participated along the trail, including Moss Bay, Everest, Norkirk, North Rose Hill, Highlands, Finn Hill, Evergreen.
Some of the activities included a scavenger hunt, rock wall, arts and crafts, picture booth, and games. The Moss Bay station included vintage fire trucks, games, Art Cart provided by the Kirkland Arts Counsel, informational booths, and food trucks.
The City Manager, Kurt Triplett, was the driver that shuttled people from one place to another during the event. Also during the event, a mural was unveiled along the trail. The mayor and city council members were all in attendance for the mural installation along with the members of the cultural arts commission.
The idea for the event came from the City-hosted "For the Love of Kirkland" workshop, designed to strengthen neighborhoods and enhance our sense of community. If you would like to contribute your time or talents to volunteer for next year’s event, please reach out!
