West Seattle Rotary takes on Grand Parade sponsorship

After 80 years of service of the West Seattle Grand Parade, one of the community's signature summer events, the American Legion Post 160 is passing on the stewardship of the event to the West Seattle Rotary Club.

The West Seattle Rotary Club's West Seattle Parade is scheduled for Saturday, July 19 at 11:00 AM.

Parade planning has already been underway for a couple months. Jim Edwards and Dave Vague will continue in their capacities as parade coordinators. A new address and phone number will be established soon, and applications will be in the mail in the coming month. In addition to the grand parade, the Rotary Club will continue to fund and operate the Kiddie's parade that precedes the main event. Also on the parade route that morning will be the 3rd annual Float Dodger 5k.
