Cancellations

Events or businesses canceled, postponed or closed because of Tuesday’s terrorist attacks:

  • As of 1 p.m. today, the Arlington, Edmonds, Everett, Granite Falls, Mukilteo and Shoreline school districts had postponed all of today’s interscholastic sports events.

  • All major league baseball games, including the Seattle Mariners game at Anaheim, were postponed. It was the first time since President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s death in 1945 that baseball wiped out a whole day of regular-season play because of a national tragedy. Also postponed was the Tacoma Rainiers’ Pacific Coast League championship series opener at New Orleans.

  • The Puyallup Fair continues will remain open, with heightened security, through Sept. 23. However, the Mya concert scheduled for tonight has been canceled. Ticket holders can exchange tickets or return them for a refund. Ticket holders who purchased tickets by phone or on the Internet must return them by mail to Ticketmaster, P.O. Box 4248, Seattle, WA 98104. They will be credited upon receipt.

  • The Seattle Center remains open, but several attractions and events have been canceled out of respect, not because of any explicit threat. Canceled or closed are the groundbreaking for the new Flag Pavilion, the Space Needle, the Children’s Museum, the Experience Music Project, the Pacific Science Center and the amusement park.

  • Everett and Alderwood malls closed today out of respect for the victims of the attack and their families. Both planned to reopen Wednesday. Northgate and Tacoma malls and Westlake Center also closed.

  • Many brokerage houses closed along with the closure of the New York City financial markets, but most banking centers stayed open. However, Golf Savings Bank branches in Snohomish County closed at 1 p.m. today so employees could go home to their families.

  • Everett and Edmonds community colleges remain open.

  • The Museum of Industry and Flight remains open.

  • Sno-Isle and Everett public libraries remain open.

  • Tonight’s Emmy Awards broadcast has been postponed indefinitely.

  • Federal Express and United Parcel Service are adhering to FAA regulations and are not flying. They are making some pickups but are not guaranteeing deliveries until further notice.

  • The Federal Building in Seattle is closed today.

  • The Everett School Board meeting planned for tonight has been cancelled and all Everett School District activities planned for tonight are also cancelled.

  • Naval Station Everett Smokey Point Support Complex in Marysville is closed.
