It’s the longest day of the year.
June 20, 2008
The official start of sun-season in the norther hemisphere hits at 4 p.m. PST today. That means Summer Solstice, which means extra daylight. (For the pessimists, it means that, after today, our daylit hours grow shorter. But never fear: only six months of waning days, and then it’s back to the slow crank-up of the sun-to-moon ratio.)
And, if you’re anywhere near Seattle, you’re into street festivals, and you don’t mind naked people, turn out for the Fremont Fair and Solstice Parade, Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
