Weekend Update

Hey guys, save some events for another Saturday! Apparently everything is going on this weekend. If you're bored Saturday, it's your own fault. Thanks to City Council Member Jimmy Tarlau for letting me incorporate parts of his Ward Report into this roundup.

Mount Rainier Police Chief Michael E. Scott's report to the city council.

The location has moved. On Mount Rainier Day it  will be located across the street from City Hall at the Perry Street parking lot next to the flower shop. On future Saturdays it will be at the Municipal Plaza in front of City Hall.

Mount Rainier Day Festival!
Municipal Plaza and the 3400 and 3500  Blocks of Rhode Island Avenue, 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Painting the Intersection 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Local Artist Vernon Sears and coordinator/volunteer Mike Turner with other volunteers will paint the intersection of Bunker Hill Road and 34th Street in Mount Rainier during the city’s annual Mount Rainier Day Festival.  Come out and enjoy viewing of the artwork – participate in the design markings and chalking of the street.  This should be an exciting project for the city. It will consist of local artists and volunteers painting a sun design of various hues of yellow, green and blue.  The design will light up the 34th Street business district! The City of Mount Rainier is partnering with Gateway Community Development Corporation for this project.

Countdown to Splashdown at the Prince George's Pool, open to all
"It’s too early to actually get into the water at PG Pool, but the grounds will be available for inspection and use. So whenever you're done with Mt. Rainier Day, or sports or chores (and hopefully having survived the Rapture) pack up your family and some food and come on down to the Cool Pool for our annual preseason potluck. We’ll share what we have as long as you do too." Featuring Joe "Hula Man" Atkins as deejay.
4 p.m. - 8 p.m.
