The biggest neighborhood event of the year is coming up Wednesday night. The Greenwood Seafair Parade draws about 10,000 people to downtown Greenwood to watch 100 floats, drill teams, marching bands, groups of cute kids, and of course, the Seafair Pirates.
One of the many drill teams in last year’s parade.
Sponsored by the Greenwood-Phinney Chamber of Commerce and a number of local businesses (including PhinneyWood), the 60th annual parade starts at 6 p.m. The parade route runs along Greenwood Avenue North from North 95th Street to North 85th Street, then turns west on 85th to 6th Avenue Northwest.

The theme of this year’s parade is “Greenwood’s Got Talent,” and features Grand Marshals The Coats, who starting singing on Seattle street corners and have shared the stage with The Beach Boys, Tricia Yearwood, and many other famous singers.
We’ll be at the parade taking plenty of pictures to post. If you’ve got some great shots you’d like to share, pleas email them to us. (Disclosure: PhinneyWood is a sponsor of the Seafair Parade.)
