The Ultimate Street Party – Seahawk’s Victory Parade

As Seahawks fans poured into the streets of Seattle on Sunday night, we managed to, for the most part, play it safe. Maybe you’ve seen this YouTube video showing how fans in Ballard celebrated without jaywalking. Aww yeah, that’s what we like to see.

A steady stream of satiric and self-effacing Tweets resulted – check out the #HowSeattleRiots thread. Here are some of our faves:

  • Took my turn at the 4 way stop instead of waving someone else through.
  • When causing a slow-moving vehicle to bounce up and down, please make sure all vehicle occupants are wearing seat belts
  • Talked to strangers on my @kcmetrobus ride instead of burying my nose in my @AmazonKindle

And the rioting celebration continues…

Today’s parade is expected to draw a huge crowd downtown and we’re stoked to be welcoming our Superbowl champs home!

Parade details:

  • Starts at 11 A.M. just south of Seattle Center, near 4th Avenue and Denny Way
  • Continues down 4th Avenue to S. Washington Street, then proceeds on 2nd Avenue S. to CenturyLink Field
  • Ends with a rally at CenturyLink at 1:30 P.M.

Getting around:

  • Given the influx of people in the downtown area, your best bets are going to be walking, biking, using public transit, or carpooling
  • Expect significant wait times and service delays on buses and trains
  • All bus routes that travel along or near 4th Avenue will be impacted. More information on Metro re-routes can be found at http://metro.kingcounty.gov/alerts/.
  • And bundle up – it’s going to be chilly (temperatures expected in the mid-20s)

Have fun, be safe, and way to go Seahawks!
