REMINDER: Burien’s 94th annual 4th of July Parade will begin at 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 4, and will follow a new route this year!

This event is the oldest and one of the best attended in King County, and this year it will start at SW 152nd Street, heading east from 8th Ave SW, then turn right on 2nd SW and right again at SW 153rd – see map below for the full directions.

Every year, thousands of spectators gather along the parade route in downtown Burien to see marching bands, floats, the Seafair pirates, and much more.

The parade starts at 3 p.m. and runs approximately 2 hours.

Also new this year will be the announcing team of Andrea Reay, Executive Director of Discover Burien, along with “Roving Reporter” Scott Schaefer of The B-Town Blog.

Special thanks to Rairdon’s Honda of Burien for being the title event sponsor for the parade this year, and to Boulevard Park Place, the main sponsor, along with Recology CleanScapes, the other event sponsor.

“We greatly appreciate the support from Rairdon’s Honda and all of our event sponsors and parade participants,” Reay said. “Together we are all making Burien awesome!”

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone out enjoying our beautiful city this 4th of July. Many local restaurants and businesses are planning to stay open especially for the parade and will be offering specials. Please note that the parade route has shifted slightly from previous years.

NEW ROUTE THIS YEAR
This year the parade will start on SW 152nd Street and 8th Ave SW, then proceed first eastbound on SW 152nd Street, making a right south onto 2nd Ave SW where it will then move west on SW 153rd and finally finish at Ambaum and SW 149th (click image to see larger version):
