    Great weather for two great events!!! The Seafair Clowns will be attending looking for fun and great smiles! 

    The 44th Annual Seafair Milk Carton Derby will take place on Saturday, July 12. Nearly 100 colorful milk carton boats of all shapes and design will compete on the waters of Green Lake for fantastic prizes and bragging rights. The Derby is highlighted by a full day of "competition" as children, adults, families and businesses build milk carton watercraft for show and racing. 

    A best-loved Seattle neighborhood tradition. Enjoyed by thousands of folks across the Puget Sound area and beyond, this free event celebrates Ballard and its heritage, as well as the unique community mix. First and foremost, the festival is all about fun: great music, local brews, kids activities and quality arts and crafts. And don’t forget pounds and pounds of delicious seafood! 

    Wallingford Family Parade - July 5

    For 65 years Wallingford has played host to the longest running Seafair Parade, previously known as the Kiddie Parade, now called the Wallingford Family Parade.  

    Every year the families and friends of the Seafair Clowns meet before the Wallingford parade to put on make-up and clown costumes, so they can participate in and enjoy the event.  We had a lovely event last Saturday and send out a big thank you to all of the families and friends that joined us on the parade route.
