It’s a new week and that means there are lots of things to be done! So if you’re looking to have some fun this week then be sure to keep on reading. Now, we typically would warn you about going out and about because of COVID, but this time we have to mention that the West Coast wildfires have led to us having less-than-safe air quality. So, if you are going out, throw that mask on, but also don’t spend much time outdoors if you don’t have to. Let’s stay safe out there, Seattle!

Here are 8 things to do in and around Seattle this week.
