The community of Georgetown has always been distinct. Originally separated from Seattle by tide flats at the mouth of the Duwamish River, it grew up as a center for manufacturing. It also quickly developed a reputation for a rollicking good time due to the many breweries and saloons that popped up shortly after. Today, it is home to a thriving arts scene, quirky mom & pop shops, righteous eateries, and an occasional bar or two – in other words, still a good time for all.
Be sure not to miss the annual Georgetown Carnival (free admission) on Saturday, June 8th, 2013, beginning at 12pm. Enjoy music, visual art, spectacle, and more…Visit Georgetowncarnival.com for more information.
