Actor James Doohan, Star Trek’s ‘Scotty’, called the Seattle area home until his death in 2005. Today his ashes were successfully launched into space on the first commercial supply ship rocketed toward the International Space Station.
It’s a weekend of celebration! Lunar New Year festivities, animals and nature, Seattle Boat Show, Sportmen’s Show, Tacoma Home and Garden Show and more. The snow has melted. Time to get out and explore!
2012 is the Year of the Dragon, the mightiest of signs in the Chinese zodiac. The Chinese New Year, also known as the Lunar New Year, occurs every year on the new moon of the first lunar month, about four to eight weeks before spring. There are many celebrations around Seattle to marking the dragon’s new year.
Arts and crafts, carnivals, airplanes, dragon parades and dragon boats make up some of the best of this weekend. Go get it!
