Proudly celebrating the 100th year of the longest running parade in South Seattle, the city of Burien’s 4th of July Independence Day Parade is happening this coming Tuesday, July 4, 2023!

Spectators will gather along the parade route in downtown Burien to see marching bands, drill teams, car teams and more.

The parade starts at 3 p.m. on Tuesday July 4, and runs approximately two hours. 

And our very own Scott Schaefer of The B-Town Blog will be the MC, along with local music icon Dianna Leppa!
