Heritage Parade: Saturday August 16th

994450_667682289984189_2889513084428583366_nA number of folks have emailed asking about the details for this year’s Heritage Parade. After a little bit of digging (it really should be a whole lot easier to find out about an event that’s coming up in 2+ weeks), I did find this description buried on the seattle.gov page:

Saturday, August 16, 2014
1:30 PM – 5:30 PM

Join us for the annual Heritage Parade from Noon – 1:30 PM, then come play with us at Summer Streets. We’ll open up Rainier Ave S (from S Alaska to S Brandon St) to people on foot and bike! More details to come.


and this on othellopark.org:


Rainier Valley Heritage Parade – 12:00pm to 1:30pm

Rainier Ave, between S Brandon & Alaska 98118 – Take the Lightrail to the Columbia City station and walk east 3 blocks to Rainier Ave S.

Parade Theme: Heritage

Making Rainier Ave your playground for a day! Celebrate the cultures of Seattle’s most diverse neighborhood during this weekend festival with a parade, street party, park entertainment and fun. Enjoy food, games, music, and friends from around the world! Parade features entertainment that will delight with “heritage” as the theme and Summer Streets Party will emphasize “Re-imagine your Street” with music, art, food and playful fun right down the middle of Rainier Ave!

A number of sites, including the Rainier Valley Chamber of Commerce’s Facebook page for the event, still confusingly lists 2012 date…the main RV Chamber of Commerce page lists the 2013 details.

If anyone has a site with more specific and up-to-date details, be sure to share in the comments.
