Fremont is a popular neighborhood in Seattle north of the Fremont Cut and situated between the neighborhoods of Ballard and Wallingford. A large “Welcome” sign greets visitors to “The Center of the Universe” and the Fremont Arts Council sponsors several highly attended annual events. One of those events is the Summer Solstice Parade which has made Fremont famous for its nude Solstice Cyclists. The neighborhood is home to the Fremont Troll, an 18-foot-tall concrete sculpture of a troll crushing a Volkswagen Beetle in its left hand that “lives” under the the Aurora Bridge. Cunning signs throughout Fremont give advice such as: “set your watch back five minutes,” “set your watch forward five minutes,” and “throw your watch away.”
