    FYI:

    The Seattle Center House is no longer sporting the "No Firearms are permitted at this event or on these premises" signs at its entrances. I noticed their removal a few days ago and the sticker goo is still on the walls.

    I recall seeing them go up for one of the festivals last summer.

    Well thank Goodness that your firearm didn't jump up and start firing at people. That would have been awful.

    Wow, didn't even know there was one, and I go there several times a year.

    Not that it was a legitimate sign anyway. :quirky

    Is music really the primary gathering purpose for hempfest attendees?

    (1) "Outdoor music festival" or "music festival" or "festival" means an assembly of persons gathered primarily for outdoor, live or recorded musical entertainment, where the predicted attendance is two thousand persons or more and where the duration of the program is five hours or longer: PROVIDED, That this definition shall not be applied to any regularly established permanent place of worship, stadium, athletic field, arena, auditorium, coliseum, or other similar permanently established places of assembly for assemblies which do not exceed by more than two hundred fifty people the maximum seating capacity of the structure where the assembly is held: PROVIDED, FURTHER, That this definition shall not apply to government sponsored fairs held on regularly established fairgrounds nor to assemblies required to be licensed under other laws or regulations of the state.

    It wasn't because it was a music festival, but because the park was leased out to a private party.
