Sparky checks off bucket list item #13: Visit the Space Needle in Seattle

title

By Audrey Cooney

Sparky visited Seattle’s Space Needle, which is the largest building on earth by volume by volume. At 605 feet tall, the building is so high that when it was first constructed in the 1960s clouds would sometimes form inside the tower! There are 848 steps leading up to the Space Needle’s observation deck, and, luckily, an elevator!

Sparky turned 65 on March 18, 2016, and we have been pulling out all the stops to help him celebrate! He’s created a bucket list of 65 activities and events he’d like to accomplish from now through October. As he checks them off his list, we’ll make sure to share them with you. Some of Sparky’s wishes are pretty lofty, while others are just fun or a bit silly. Check in weekly to see where he goes and what he’s up to!
