Seattle Ukulele Players Association (SUPA) is a Washington nonprofit corporation founded in 2003 to promote fellowship, entertainment, performance and education among ukulele enthusiasts in the Puget Sound region.
Fall into SUPA!
- Saturday, December 10: Green Lake Pathway of Lights 2016
- Join SUPA for another year at the Green Lake Pathway of Lights for some ukulele holiday magic! The event is from 4:30-7:30 pm, rain or shine, and our performance is at 6:00pm at the Community Center (Map).
- The "walk of lights" is lit up by luminaria that line Green Lake's pathway, and usually has as many as 10,000 people. Please wear warm clothes as it gets extremely cold next to the water. We'll have hand and feet warmers available. We'll be singing from the SUPA Holiday Songbook. Also, download the Set List. Please arrive no later than 5:45 to be ready to set up right at 6:00 p.m.
- Sunday, December 11: AFECT Holiday Cruise
- SUPA has been invited again this year to play holiday music on the cruise supporting charities for those with developmental disabilities. The AFECT (Active Ferry Employees Charitable Trust) Holiday Cruise usually has about 700 passengers and cruises Elliott Bay for about 90 minutes. The cruise has moved to Sundays beginning this year to avoid traffic, ferry, and game delays.
- SUPA members should arrive about 12:15-12:30 pm to Coleman Dock/Pier 52 (map). Carpooling is strongly recommended, as parking can be somewhat limited. Go through the toll booth at Pier 52 and let the ticket sellers know you're there for the AFECT cruise and ask where you can park. Or, if you wish to park on the boat, let the seller know that, and proceed as directed. They will begin boarding the boat about 12:45, and the boat leaves the dock at 2:00, returning to Pier 52 at 3:30. So plan for traffic on the waterfront and be onboard no later than 1:45. There is an elevator from the car deck. Snacks will be provided as usual (cheese sticks, pepperoni sticks, applesauce, chips, cookies and beverages; coffee, pop, water), but if you want "real" food, please provide your own.
- If you have some festive holiday attire, please bring that along. In addition, aloha shirts always work well. We'll be inside, so the temperature should be fine, unless the doors are kept open. Please dress in layers just in case (as is always good advice in the Northwest). Please bring the SUPA Holiday Songbook. Also, download the Set List.

This is the old brick school on Dayton Avenue and not the wooden blue building on Phinney Ave. Parking is available in the lower lot (east) off 67th Street. Accessible entrance is on the east side of the building on Dayton Avenue.
