Seattle residents will light up this holiday season in celebration of the first anniversary of Washington state’s legalization of marijuana.

After a three-month battle, city officials approved a weed festival at the Seattle Center’s old Fun Forest amusement park. Pot advocate Ben Livingston plans to feature light music, food and pot smoking for up to 500 people behind a double fence, or smoking “moat.” The state prohibits people from smoking pot in public.

The free, adults-only event is open to the public.

I guess 5000 people will show up...but there's plenty of room!

I'd love to go, but it sounds like it'll be crowded. If they are going to have 500 people it should be in a space that can accommodate 1,000 people. So we can all move around.
