Seafair Torchlight Parade

The annual Seafair Torchlight Parade will be taking place Saturday, July 26. From 7:30 pm to 12 midnight, the streets around the Seattle Center and 4th Avenue will light up with a magical, musical torchlight night.

Sponsored by Alaska Airlines, the 65th year of the parade will feature giant helium balloons, drill teams, equestrian units, lively clowns, the famous Seafair Pirates, and marching bands. Grab a seat on the curb along the two and a half mile route to cheer on the entertainers as they pass by.

The festivities will also be on TV, on KIRO 7 starting at 7 pm. The KIRO 7 Eyewitness News Morning Team will be participating in the parade on a vintage hydroplane this year. Seafair Parade Marshals from 20 different communities all over the Northwest help to plan, promote, and produce the event.

Before the parade, don’t miss the Seafair Torchlight FanFest and Torchlight Run. Find all the details about these and all the Seafair festivities all over Puget Sound online at
