Here’s a last-minute addition to the Greenwood Seafair Parade festivities on Wednesday: pony rides in the Fred Meyer parking lot.
Parade Director Ann Woodward said Dean Ridgway from Ridgeline Ranch in Sequim will bring his Welsh ponies for pony rides, starting at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
The Ridgeline Ranch is located in Sequim on 30 acres of pasture with 3 spring-fed ponds. “It is a pony paradise,” says Dean who has been providing pony rides for 22 years. “I enjoy working outside with my ponies and watching the parents smile and the children enjoy the ride.”
The parade starts at 6 p.m. Wednesday at North 95th Street and Greenwood Avenue North. The route runs south on Greenwood Avenue, then west on 85th Street to 6th Avenue NW. More than 100 entries of drill teams, floats, bands, school and community groups, Seafair pirates and more will march in the parade.
