The second-ever Hopscotch CD is happening August 23, and it’s guaranteed to be super fun. Hosted by Jackson Commons, the route has been expanded to 2.9 miles stretching from Jackson to Union, and much of the route follows potential neighborhood greenway routes. The whole day is going to be full of smiles in the CD, but the highlight might be their second attempt to break the hopscotch world record at 1 p.m. at 18th and Cherry. More on the event from the website: Hopscotch CD is a 2.9-mile temporary hopscotch path around the Central District neighborhood of Seattle, Washington, USA. The almost two-mile temporary path is laid down by volunteers before the event, taking almost three full days, using giant stencils and a “chalks” made out of mostly cornstarch, a dash of flour and sugar and bit of food coloring. We invite all of our neighbors to come out, play on the course, add and decorate the path with chalk, and enjoy the many events happening that day: an attempt at breaking the world record for most hopscotchers playing at the same time, sidewalk sales, garage sales, games, story time in the park, and any number of great events thought up and put on by our neighbors here in the CD. We’re hoping that other fun people will help us and come up with other things to do along the route, and in the neighborhood, that day, for example, having a picnic, dancing, making music, hula hooping, hosting a party, painting, skipping, singing, writing poetry, passing out free stuff, having a sale, being generally silly, and other fun things you think of.
