This was my first look at the Seafair Torchlight Parade in Seattle. It was nice bring able to watch it from my balcony with friends, and with much alcohol consumption.
First of all, there’s no torches. It’s just called that because it occurrs late in the evening. It started at 7:30pm and didn’t end until around 9:30pm. This parade wasn’t as good as the Gay Pride Parade a few weeks ago but that’s a hard act to follow.
One thing this parade had though was the giant balloons. I was watching from my balcony at 5th and Blanchard so I could see the tops of the giant balloons traveling down 4th before I saw them entirely at the 4th and Blanchard intersection.
Anyways, good times for everyone. I think of WOULD be sweet if there were some torch jugglers as well but oh well.
