We wanted to mention something we missed posting about earlier. The PiÃ±ata Party, held for the last few years in Stevens Place Park (or Triangle Park) on Beacon Avenue in mid-July has been cancelled for this year. Jon Gould wrote to the mailing list:
We’ve decided to skip the annual PiÃ±ata Party in Triangle Park (Stevens and Beacon) this year.
We had originally planned the event for July 18th. Now that’s Link Light Rail’s first day. After thinking about it, we decided to take this year off and come back with a great party in 2010. The tentative date we set is Saturday, July 10, 2010.
If you want to help organize the 2010 PiÃ±ata Party, let me know and we’ll connect closer to the event.

Though there won’t be a PiÃ±ata Party that day, Sound Transit promises that “stations from Westlake to Tukwila will include a Welcome Portal and family-friendly entertainment.” Train rides will also be free. So visiting the Beacon Hill light rail station and riding to the other stations should be a fun alternative, though — as far as we know — there won’t be any piÃ±atas there.
