Mark your calendars! One of the best family festivals of Seafair for the past two decades, Tour de Terrace kicks off Friday, July 29 with the 23rd Annual Tour de Terrace Parade featuring the Seattle Police Motorcycle Drill team at 6:45 p.m. This year’s Grand Marshals are Jim and Karen Miller, Mountlake Terrace residents since 1956; and Jim is a former City Councilmember and Karen is a retired Snohomish County Councilmember. The parade travels along 56th Avenue West from 234th Street northward to 222nd Street and Evergreen Playfield.
The parade rolls down “Main Street” with fan favorites including the Seafair Pirates and Clowns, Lake City Western Vigilantes, drill teams, dancers, floats, trucks, classic cars and much more. The Tour de Terrace Parade is always held the night before the “Seattle Torchlight Parade” and serves as a dress rehearsal for many of the parade participants.
Among the Tour de Terrace highlights are live music and entertainment on the main stage, a beer garden, food booths, pancake breakfast, street fair, Davis Shows Northwest Carnival, and the classic car, truck and motorcycle show (Saturday only 9-3). The fireworks show will light up the sky on Saturday evening, July 30, just after 10:00 p.m.
“Tour de Terrace draws thousands and thousands of people to Mountlake Terrace each year and it’s only possible because of the hardworking citizens who formed a group and started this festival over 20 years ago,” stated Community Relations Director Virginia Olsen. “The core of those original volunteers still carries out this festival today. It’s a very special weekend for the Mountlake Terrace community!”
