PHOTOS: Brat Trot Banners Festoon The Streetlamps Of Olde Burien
If you’re out and about on this beautiful fall day in B-Town, be sure to look up if you’re near Olde Burien to see some new blue and white checked banners festooning the streetlamps, promoting the upcoming Oct. 9th Brat Trot 5K Fundraiser (we’re a Sponsor).
“This is the first year we’ve hung banners,” said Ashley Fosberg, Executive Director of the Highline Schools Foundation. “It was Danny House’s idea (the Brat Trot is presented by the Tin Room) to help make Olde Burien look festive. The blue and white checks is a very typical German Oktoberfest design!”
Here are some pics of the banner festooniosity as shot by Scott Schaefer:
