CANCELED: 2020 West Seattle Grand Parade

Another major summer event is off until next year. Just received from Keith Hughes, who chairs the West Seattle Grand Parade Committee for the Rotary Club of West Seattle:

It is with great sadness that I have to announce that the 2020 West Seattle Grand Parade has been cancelled.

The Parade has been held in July for 87 years, and is the longest running Community Parade in Seattle. The Parade Committee believes that in these difficult times, public safety is the greater concern. We are all committed to being back in 2021.

    I grew up in West Seattle back in the 50’s & 60’s. Every Summer my siblings & I along with our friends looked forward to the carnival & parade, part of Seafair. It was called the “Hi You” festival back in the day, we couldn’t wait for it to start, especially the carnival! The rides, loved the ferris wheel, the spooky house, the games, & best of all the food! Hot dogs, hamburgers, ice cream, cotton candy all so good, the memories, so much fun growing up in West Seattle.
