The parade route will once again wind through downtown Seattle along 4th Ave, between Pike St and Denny Way, moving south to north. The parade starts at Westlake Park – 4th Ave & Pine Street, and this area will include a Parade HQ, pre-show performances, and a parade announcer. Here, you will also find grandstand bleachers, a stage, vendor booths, restrooms, ADA priority seating, and food.
