July 4th gathering at Gasworks Park: GasuKan 6.5?

I know it's a bit last minute, but would anybody be interested? The fireworks display on Lake Union is supposed to be one of the best in the country (haven't seen it in person in years, but it's been years since I went anywhere for the 4th). Gasworks is kind of GK's "home", so it would be cool if some of us got together, staked out a spot, and watched the fireworks together.

I'm working in Everett until 6:30, and I probably have to take the bus down--I don't want to try to find parking in Seattle on the 4th--so I can't get there until around 8:00. Otherwise I'd save a spot myself. However, if anyone else is free earlier in the day and would be willing to stake out a place, that would be really cool. I'd say, pick a spot ahead of time for everyone who wants to join us to meet. Maybe close to the covered area with all the pipes, or the small wooded spot near to it? We usually meet around there for GasuKan anyway, so it'd be easy for everyone to find.


People tend to dress kind of crazy on the 4th anyway, so I think we could get away with cosplay, at least casual stuff (nothing with weapons, though; leave the swords and guns and stuff at home). In honor of the day, I'd suggest picking something red, white, or blue, or even adding the colors to one of your outfits.

Just a thought! I'll be going even if I'm the only one there (probably an "Independence Day/Casual!Orihime", just because I love the wig and she'll look cute in the colors), but it would be a lot of fun if there were other people to hang with. Let me know if you're interested!

I've never seen the fireworks in person ever. I'm usually at home lighting my own alone how pathetic.

I'd like to check it out...

When I lived in Anchorage my family went to the local display every year. It's always worth it to go to a professional show.

The stuff that goes on in my neighborhood is pretty cool, but the houses and trees block a lot of the bigger ones. Plus there's always the fear that something'll get set on fire, and that's not cool.

I'll be bringing along a blanket to sit on. If you're going to be one of the people who can make it there early, it might be a good idea to make a sign that says "GasuKan" on it, just so you're easier to spot.
Don't forget jackets, everyone!

Kind of wish I wasn't working, but I do get both time-and-a-half and holiday pay for the day. Which makes up for being a little late to the party.

In that case, I'll bake a cake to bring with.

Hey maybe you can be "casual" Rukia. Have a "casual" Bleach gathering!

Hey Kumi, maybe we should call it: GASUKAN "6.4" or rather "6.4th!" ;p

I'll see if I can get there early. Any preferences where people would like to sit? If I get there around dinner time, I'll bring some food to share say like chicken or something, as I'll be hungry as well. But BYOB .

When I get home I'll go ahead and post this event at the GK Facebook group.

If I didn't have to worry about the bus, I might go, but it's a possibility.

I'm taking the bus. It's on Sunday hours, but the 511 does run north from I-5 and 45th (the U-District stop) until 11:50 p.m. It's not a horrible walk from that stop to Gasworks...a little long, but that's what I'm doing. I used to walk up to UW from I-5 every Friday for anime club, and it only took me ten or fifteen minutes. I figure maybe a half-hour from the freeway to the park.

If you need a ride home after that, I can give you one. We just have to make sure we leave the park with plenty of time to spare.

While I'd love to go. My friends and I are having a party on Bainbridge. We really don't want to change our plans since this is our first time together in months.

Sorry.

Well, I am being asked to show up late at night on a holiday bus schedule, but... this is a perfect opportunity to show off my new and improved Light cosplay earlier than I anticipated. This is something I'll have to think about over the week.
