We’re looking for YOU to join us on July 27th at the Alaska Airlines Seafair Torchlight Parade! We’re looking for 98 service members and veterans to walk with us in the parade and show your love of country! If you would like to join us, make sure you sign up below!
Since 1950, tens of thousands of spectators have gathered on a warm July night to watch as parade units march, float and dance in celebration of Seattle. In its 70th year, the parade continues to highlight and celebrate traditions in Greater Seattle’s diverse cultural landscape as well as start new traditions, welcoming those new to the Seattle area. The 2019 Alaska Airlines Torchlight Parade will feature entries both old and new and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser on this momentous year.
This event is free and open to the public, with reserved seating available for purchase. For 2019, we are thrilled that Mr. Tod Leiweke, CEO and Team president for Seattle’s new NHL hockey team, will be leading our Alaska Airlines Torchlight Parade!
The public is invited to Seattle Center before the parade for FanFest where they can get an up-close and personal view of the floats, marching bands, and the equestrian units as they all go through final preparations for the parade. FanFest is from 12 pm to 6:00 pm.
