‘J.P. Patches Place’ Ceremony Scheduled For June 1st

Metro

SEATTLE, Wash.- A section of North 34th Street in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood is about to be officially named in honor of beloved TV clown J.P. Patches.

The stretch of North 34th between Fremont Avenue North and Troll Avenue North will become J.P. Patches Place during the June 1 ceremony, which will be emceed by Pat Cashman.

The City of Seattle approved the name change last year following the death of Chris Wedes, who played J.P. Patches for decades on TV and in numerous public appearances.

The street runs in front of the J.P. Patches and Gertrude statue that was dedicated in 2008.
