West Seattle 4th of July Kids’ Parade updates: 10 days away!

June 24, 2013 at 10:34 pm | In Holidays, West Seattle news | 5 Comments

Just a week and a half till the 4th of July – and West Seattle’s one and only Independence Day parade is looking good! You’ll recall that longtime coordinator Sherri Chun has passed the baton to new co-coordinators, and we have updates from one of them, Jackie Clough of Alki Party Treasures (WSB sponsor), who tells WSB:

*Sponsors are enabling the Hamilton Viewpoint event after the parade to be a lively kid-friendly event as always, with games and concessions.

*West Seattle politicians will help get things going as usual – Admiral resident and former Mayor Greg Nickels at the start, West Seattle resident and County Councilmember Joe McDermott at the kickoff of the post-parade games.

*You’ll see a few days of parade promotion at Walking on Logs, courtesy of WestSide Baby, which will be promoting the Stuff the Bus diaper drive there by then. Speaking of which … Jackie says there’ll be a diaper drive at the parade to benefit WS Baby. She suggests it’s a “kids helping kids opportunity.”

*Janelle Maroney, recent Chief Sealth International High School graduate, will sing the national anthem.

*The parade has a Facebook event page to which you can RSVP (or at least “join” it for a reminder) – find it here.

The parade starts same time, same place as always – 10 am, 44th/Sunset in North Admiral (map) – come be part of it!


  1. My heartfelt thanks to Allyson and Jackie for taking on the parade this year, and taking it to new levels. I am so thankful this West Seattle tradition will continue. You ladies rock!

  5. We love it when Dr. Sholten sings too. This year we are very excited to have Janelle Maroney, a recent graduate of Sealth High School and a terrific singer. I hope you can come. You won’t be disappointed!
