A lot of people only know the part of Seafair that involves Blue Angels, hydroplanes and the drunk boat parties. I don't blame them for wanting to be as far away from the city as possible during that weekend! As a native, Seafair has always meant that summer will never be dull in Seattle. From the pirates to the 75 community cultural festivals and yes, even watching the Blue Angels with my family, Seafair means there is never a shortage of things to do in my beloved city.
Last week, Seafair held a party in Westlake Park to announce this year's Seafair royalty as well as some of the new additions to the season schedule. We were treated to a performance by the luminous Grace Love, and the beloved Seafair Pirates disembarked to several Starbucks in the city to serve as guest baristas for part of the day.
Seafair inducted former Seahawks player Jordan Babineaux (King Neptune), Midday Warm 106.9 Radio Host Shellie Hart (Queen Alcyone), and actress Anna Faris (Grand Marshal of the Alaska Airlines Seafair Torchlight Parade) to its Royal Court.
The Seafair team also announced improved transit and parking options for Seafair weekend, and a free show from Hey Marseilles at Gas Works Park for the Fourth of July.
