Now, the latest update on the parade itself:
A welcome home Victory Celebration Parade is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, February 5.
The parade will begin just south of Seattle Center at Denny Way and travel south down 4th Avenue past Westlake Park and finish at the north entrance of CenturyLink Field, see a map of the route below.
Participants include Seahawks Players, Head Coach Pete Carroll, Coaching Staff, Seahawks Executives, Sea Gals, Blitz and the Blue Thunder drumline. In addition, Governor Jay Inslee, King County Executive Dow Constantine and Seattle Mayor Ed Murray will join the parade.
Seattle Police Department will close 4th Avenue at 10:30 a.m. and will reopen 4th Avenue as soon as possible. Fans are encouraged to gather early as big crowds are expected downtown and transportation delays are likely. There will be limited parking availability at CenturyLink Field. Fans should also try to carpool and utilize public transportation and dress warmly as the forecast calls for cold temperatures.
The City is deploying additional resources to ensure public safety and continuity of City services. Additional information about transportation options will be available mid day on Tuesday, February 4.
Residents are encouraged to carpool or take transit to the victory parade. Parking will be limited and traffic is likely to be slow.
We’ve been asked repeatedly if there is any chance of extra West Seattle Water Taxi runs to get West Seattleites to the parade. UPDATE: Yes!
