A few days ago, the WNBA announced that the city of Seattle will host the 2017 All-Star game July 22, 2017. Super cool, but the game is the same weekend as the Bite of Seattle – one of the city’s largest festivals. The Bite takes over Seattle Center, where KeyArena is located, and shuts down traffic and parking in surrounding areas.
The Storm have often had a home game that weekend, with attendance taking a hit due to the festival. I wonder how the WNBA will accommodate all the extra visitors for the All-Star game, and where they will stay and park. I will be curious to find out the plan for this.
