We live in Ballard, a Seattle neighborhood. Now, I’m sure everyone thinks their neighborhood is the greatest, but really, Ballard is pretty awesome.

It was held for the first time this year at Fisher Pavilion in Seattle Center and proved to be a fantastic night.

And, the entertainment, provided by students (both from band and orchestra) and staff, created a perfect blend of class and fun.
