Some Seattle residents are getting out and hopping with their neighbors.
They stenciled a 1.8-mile-long hopscotch course on sidewalks through the Central District, and they invited folks to head out Saturday and hop the route. A number of community events were planned along the way.
Also scheduled: an attempt to break the world record for most people hopscotching at once. According to Guinness World Records, the existing record is 358 and was set in London in 2011.
Organizer Lori Kane said the neighbors heard about a similar hopscotch event in Detroit last year and thought it sounded like fun.
The hopscotch course is only temporary. It was stenciled with a paint made of flour, sugar, cornstarch, water and food coloring, and will wash away after a few rains.
