Will you be joining the thousands in Seattle for this year’s Seafair Torchlight Parade?
This annual event has been hosted for nearly 70 years, bringing thousands to watch over 100 parade units, from clowns and pirates to drill teams and equestrian units, plus giant helium balloons- and, it’s all free.
The parade kicks off at 7:30 p.m. from Seattle Center and runs down 4th Avenue to Pioneer Square. The Seattle Department of Transportation anticipates about 26,000 people to attend.
