Join the race to the 2013 Geocaching Block Party in Seattle, Washington. Enter a Travel Bug® into the “The Great Geocaching Block Party 2013 Travel Bug Race” bin by the Geocaching Museum at the 2012 Geocaching Block Party. Find details here.
Here is a map of the party with a schedule of the day’s events:
There should be a fair amount of street parking nearby. We suggest trying across Fremont Avenue to the west and walking along the lovely Burke-Gilman Trail to the event.
We also encourage you to bring a water bottle. If the day is as hot as it was last year, you'll want it! There will be a water refill station at the event.
Please post questions and comments to the special forum section for the Block Party.
Please note: On Sunday, August 19th, WSGA is hosting its third annual Going APE event (now with Mega status) as part of this geocaching destination weekend.
