Video: WSHS and Sealth bands, Salty’s nutcrackers in downtown parade

Did you go downtown for the Macy’s Holiday Parade this morning? Dozens of West Seattleites were part of it:

Among them, two groups in the clip above – the Salty’s (WSB sponsor) Nutcrackers, followed immediately by the West Seattle High School Marching Band, directed by Ethan Thomas. Below, their counterparts from Chief Sealth International High School, directed by Marcus Pimpleton:

The Sealth band also will be part of the 10th annual West Seattle Junction Hometown Holidays Tree Lighting one week from tomorrow – Saturday night, December 7, 5 pm, at Junction Plaza Park (42nd/Alaska), also featuring emcee Brent Amaker, the Endolyne Children’s Choir, and more.

    Aha, appears to be WSB’s longtime, favorite, Downtown Parade Viewing Zone! ;-)


    This time it appears to actually be at/near the N.E. corner of 4th & University, or perhaps across the street on 4th, with a zoom.

      Mike, the secret behind that for this parade is … I overslept and got a late start today (the first story of the day going up after 8 am was a hint) and Patrick drove me downtown. The parade goes south on 5th to University, then north on 4th. To avoid traffic, I had him drop me south of that, at which time it was so perilously close to the start of the parade, I grabbed the first spot I saw …The turn there at University/4th provides a good view! – TR, parade geek

Sorry, comment time is over.
