Campaign of the Month: November 2012
THE EMERALD CITY
Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood is a bohemian district north of downtown. Fremont is an eclectic, artsy neighborhood of Seattle located in the north-central section of Washington’s largest metropolis. Overlooking Salmon Bay, the small community of Fremont bills itself as “the center of the universe.” It is bordered to the east by the Wallingford neighborhood and to the west by the trendy Ballard neighborhood, it commands a central place in Seattle’s burgeoning growth. Known best for its offbeat and irreverent parades, parties and sidewalk art, Fremont is home to such Seattle landmarks as the Annual Solstice Parade, which is famous for its nude cyclists and quirky celebrations; the Fremont Troll Monument; and the neighborhood’s controversial 7-ton Lenin statue.
A BRIDGE TO EVERYWHERE
The Fremont Trollway is A Bridge to Everywhere. It is the JFK Airport of the Nevernever in the Pacific Northwest. The Fremont Tribe of Trolls has dwelled beneath the Bridges since they were created. The Trolls found that the Bridges have a strange link to the Nevernever and as a result have been affected by it. Fremont Trolls have a natural talent towards Nevernever travel. They are willing to guide others to various destinations throughout the worlds. For a price of course. One enterprising Troll has also opened a Snack bar that serves Starbucks (It is Seattle) which Zeb calls Trollbucks.
