Proudly in its 97th year, the city of Burien’s 4th of July Independence day parade – sponsored by PCC Community Markets and Yarington Funeral Home – is the oldest and one of the best attended in King County.
The parade will start at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, July 4, and will runÂ approximatelyÂ two hours.
The event is also officially sanctioned by SEAFAIR as a Seafair Community Event.
“Seafair believes in celebrating the traditions of our region, resources and diverse residents. The thirty festivals and parades selected as Seafair Community events are important elements of our healthy communities,” the Seafair Foundation said.
Every year, thousands of spectators gather along the parade route in downtown Burien to see marching bands, floats, Seafair Pirates and much more.
Staging will happen on SW 153rd Street, east of Ambaum between 6th and 4th Ave SW, then starts the route east along SW 153rd turning North onto 2nd Ave SW. A turn will follow west onto SW 152nd to 4th where the route will head north to the entrance of City Hall, turning East and following along Town Square Park on 5th Ave SW.
