REMINDER: Burien’s 93rd Annual Independence Day Parade will start at 3 p.m. on Friday, July 4th (we’re Media Sponsors), and the weather peeps are calling for “mostly cloudy, with a high near 73,” so it should be a perfect day for truly local patriotism!

King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg will serve as the official Emcee for this year’s parade. Satterberg, a 1978 graduate of Highline High School, has served as King County Prosecutor since 2007. He currently lives in Normandy Park, and occasionally plays in bands the Treehouse Dreamers (played on SoKing Internet Radio) and cover band The Approximations.

The parade, presented by the City of Burien and the Southwest King County Chamber of Commerce, will begin at 3 p.m. at the intersection of Ambaum Blvd. SW and SW 149th Street, then will head south on Ambaum, east on SW 153rd, north on 4th Ave. SW, then west on SW 152nd.

It runs for approximately 90 minutes, putting it at a convenient time before all the barbecuing and fireworks begin.

The parade is sponsored by the Southwest King County Chamber of Commerce, and South King Media is the media sponsor.

Yep, that’s Ronald McDonald on a Segway.

Downtown Burien also boasts an eclectic and charming mix of business, retail and restaurants, as well as a strong sense of community pride. Burien Town Square and City Hall form an impressive backdrop for the downtown “skyline.” People have FUN in B-Town!

Everyone is invited to come and be a part of this longstanding Burien tradition – make it yours in 2014!

    Great parade. Loved the school groups,performers, well behaved dogs, motorcycles, kids, Fire fighters, police, Veterans groups, incredible cars,trucks, musicians, dancers, etc. Don’t understand the silence of the adult folks watching. Little cheering, waving, clapping and signs of enjoyment. Not my idea of showing appreciation for the work and commitment of our neighbors and organizations who made it a wonderful event for our community.

    Thanks parade participants. You rock!

    Thanks for the compliments on the dogs :-) It was more work than anyone knows. Training our dog to work around other dogs was the result of more than a year’s worth of training. We all had to keep our dogs hydrated and on their best behavior for at least an hour before any of you saw us. Some dogs were anxious but they were still finding it in themselves to do their best to please us and you. So yes, next year, we’d love more clapping and cheering. By the way, we loved it when the pre-teen girls gushed “Ohhhhhhh CUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUTE!” :-)
