A 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:
SATURDAY AUGUST 16TH
Rainier Valley Heritage Parade – 12:00pm to 1:30pm
