Trippy Seattle SkylineEvent organizers are expecting to break attendance records this weekend for the 20th annual Seattle Hempfest, taking place this Friday through Sunday at Myrtle Edwards Park along the downtown Seattle waterfront.

Previous years’ events, which were limited to two days, have drawn crowds in excesses of 150,000 people.

Over 60 musical acts and over one hundred speakers — including NORML Executive Director Allen St. Pierre, NORML Advisory Board Member and travel show host Rick Steves, Ohio Democrat Congressman Dennis Kucinich, and Washington state Representatives Mary Lou Dickerson and Roger Goodman — will participate in the event.

A complete line-up of this year’s scheduled events, musicians, and speakers is available online at: http://www.hempfest.org/drupal/node.
