The 65th annual Greenwood Seafair Parade begins at 6 p.m. Wednesday and will bring thousands of people to Greenwood Avenue and 85th Street to see more than 100 entries, including floats, drill teams, unicyclists and classic cars. It is the oldest neighborhood Seafair-sanctioned parade.
Q13’s Emmy-award winning meteorologist M.J. McDermott is the grand marshal. This year’s theme is “Don’t Rain on My Parade.”
The parade starts at North 95th Street and goes south along Greenwood Avenue North, then turns west on North 85th Street to 6th Avenue NW. (But Greenwood Avenue will be closed all the way up to North 105th Street for event staging.) Metro buses 5, 48 and 355 will be rerouted onto alternate nearby streets. See Metro’s Service Advisories page for detailed information.
