Seafair Fleet Week and Seafair Weekend are here!

Seafair has hosted Fleet Week on the Seattle waterfront since 1950, and is doing it again this week!

Seafair, the Seattle Navy League and the Port of Seattle welcomed ships and personnel from the U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard and Royal Canadian Navy to the Seattle waterfront Tuesday, July 31 during a majestic Parade of Ships. Ship tours are operating Aug. 1-5.

The Centerline has published a blog post covering the Aug. 3-5 Seafair Weekend; featuring the annual sun-soaked showcase of hydroplanes, pirates and aerial displays – headlined by the Blue Angels’ Navy and Marine Corps team.

Metro Matters has announced that Metro, Sound Transit and the King County Water Taxi will continue their annual Seafair tradition of providing free transit service to members of the military during Fleet Week; active duty, veterans and retirees.

Both blogs contain numerous links to great Seafair information, and you can also visit the official Seafair site for information about events and more.
