  1. Great Edmonds experience today, Main Street closure for pedestrian accompanied by Farmers market offering was unique and flowed well in my opinion. My 9 year old purchased a purse and my 7 year old had a hot dog, great day! Thank you volunteers and Leadership for making this happen.

  2. Thank you for the pedestrian-only Main Street. What a great feel it is to walk the streets of Edmonds. The market is growing every weekend as is attendance. The weather has not been agreeable so far, but summer is coming and this weekend opening is a great way to maintain social distancing and help people fee they are not so isolated. Closing 5th Ave S to Dayton is something to be considered as it was confusing for pedestrians who were walking in the fountain area and some cars attempting to make U-turns in the middle of the street. Another great day, so thank you Edmonds.

  3. Mask up, stay distanced, and if you’re able please support restaurants and retail across the city! It was nice to see more retailers move outside as well. That takes extra time and money, and I hope it brings the intended benefits. Looked like more restaurants and cafes were being creative with their outdoor dining setups too.

  4. It is wonderful to have the streets closed and to see people come to stroll the business district. It was good to see some of the merchants setting up outside displays , as well as the restaurants using the sidewalks for more space to safely distance. It was hazardous to allow cars to drive on 5th – many of the drivers then made a u-turn around the fountain. The fountain could be a gathering point during the closure times if 5th were closed between Dayton and Main (or even Bell).

  5. Totally agree with Helen Hall on closing 5th Ave South to Dayton….My wife, Michelle , and I had a 45 minute lunch on the corner and observed numerous and dangerous “close calls” between autos & pedestrians.

    I also agree with Pete Farmer PPLEASE OPEN THE PUBLIC RESTROOMS and provide for the proper health related maintenance of same.

    1. Edmonds must be the only city that still has its downtown restrooms closed. We were in Poulsbo the other day, and theirs were open. Same in Mukilteo.
