Greenwood Seafair Parade on Wednesday will bring 100+ floats, drill teams, marching bands to the neighborhood

The 66th annual Greenwood Seafair Parade begins at 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 27, 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.

The Seattle All-City Marching Band.

The Seattle All-City Marching Band marches in the Greenwood Seafair Parade in 2011.

This year’s theme is “Greenwood: A Community United” with Fire Station 21 firefighters as the grand marshals, in honor of their heroism during the March 9 natural gas explosion that rocked the neighborhood.

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.
