For more than 60 years, Seattle’s Seafair
has celebrated summer with community events, parades, Miss Seafair, amateur athletics, a Navy airshow
and unlimited hydroplane races.
The two-month long summer festival celebrates
traditions, ethnic culture and diverse neighborhoods that make Seattle so unique.
Renowned comedian, actor, producer and minority owner of Seattle Sounders FC,
