American Idol ~ Blake Lewis Day in Bothell

As of July 2017 Photobucket has blacked out all my photos and is holding them hostage on their site.

 UPDATE: BLAKE MADE IT TO THE FINAL TWO. CONGRATULATIONS BLAKE!!  More about Blake and Bothell here.

I can be an American Idol fan, especially when one of the 3 finalists graduated in the same high school class as my middle son. (Try not to judge me too harshly)  So today in our hometown in Washington we celebrated Blake Lewis Day. Fleeting fame but fun nevertheless. Bothell is now on the map. Here are some photos of the fun and festivities…

 

This is the high school that all three of my kids graduated from. Dan and Blake graduated in 1999. They are proudly displaying…Blake Lewis in Final Three!!!

 

The celebration parade took place on Main Street in downtown Bothell and the concert took place at Bothell landing along the Sammamish River.

 

Here I am with thousands of my closest friends waiting for Blake to arrive.

 

Even the river had police presence. This is a Sheriff boat.

 

The Seattle Seahawks mascot was there along with Matt Hasselbeck (Seahawk quarterback) to give Blake a personal jersey.

 

That’s Blake waving to us on the bridge. He’s wearing the stripped vest and holding the microphone.

 

This bridge was my vantage point.

 

The main crowd on Bothell Landing.

 

The overflow crowd on the other side of the river.

 

A beautiful sunny day in Bothell, Washington. We hope Blake makes it to the final two!

  1. So, So cool! I wish I could have gone with you! We did get to hear him sing the National Anthem at the Mariners game! He sang it straight no bee bop. He did a great job and so did the Mariners! They beat the Yankees 3-0!!!

    ellen backatcha: Way to go Mariners, way to go Blake! Glad you had a fun evening.

  2. My brother works for the Mariners and saw Blake there…actually, my brother picked up Blake’s water bottle for him when he dropped it on the floor right by his foot 🙂 I’m rooting for him to reach the final two, too!
