Make way for the Kiddie–ahem, excuse me–the Wallingford Family Parade and Festival, which kicks-off at 11:00am on Saturday, July 6. Now in it’s 64th year, the parade is one of the longest running Seafair sanctioned community events. The snazzy new name and logo reflects Wallingford’s “collective family” of neighbors, businesses, schools, and organizations.
This year’s theme is “Wild For Wallingford!” and while kiddies still play a big role in the parade, you’ll see all sorts of participants, including an Asian Small-Clawed Otter from Woodland Park Zoo serving as Grand Marshall. Kids/families are welcome to join in the “Wild for Wallingford” parade. Just come to the staging area at the Lincoln High School Parking lot on Interlake Avenue N., beginning at 10:00am.
The parade route begins at Interlake Avenue N. and N. 45th, traversing east on N. 45th Street, then north on Bagley, where it ends at N. 46th. The Festival portion of the day will take place at Meridian Park from Noon to 5:00PM, featuring food, games, bouncy houses and live entertainment on two stages.
