Plan on heavy traffic on Saturday due to multiple events at Seattle Center

 SEATTLE – Saturday, January 12, there will be three very different events at the Seattle Center ranging from snow activities including a sold-out snowball fight and a Seattle University Basketball game, to an operatic Cinderella.  Taking place at overlapping times, the events are expected to draw a combined attendance of nearly 13,000 people. 


The Seattle Department of Transportation urges motorists to consider leaving their cars at home and reduce their impact on the environment by traveling via one of the many alternate modes of transportation available – bus, carpool, Metro Transit, the Sounder commuter train, Link light rail, bicycle or even walking, if feasible.
