Please read the entire post before asking further questions.

Just because we aren't marching in the parade doesn't mean we can't go watch and attend the PrideFest afterwards!

Parade Info:

"On Sunday, June 30, 2013, Seattle Pride will host its 39th annual Pride Parade starting at 11:00 AM. The parade kicks off at 4th Avenue & Union streets, and will proceed north down 4th Avenue to Denny Way. It will last approximately two and a half hours and will be held rain or shine."

A good place to watch is at Westlake Center on 4th near the parade announcers. Westlake's physical address is 400 Pine St., Seattle. It is located between Olive and Pine on 4th Ave. I, Zarek, will be marching with my swim team in the parade and will not be there to meet people. I suggest that people meet up there at 10:00 am to get a decent spot, but anyone is welcome to come earlier to save a big spot. The parade will last about 2 - 2.5 hours. After the parade we can all walk down to the PrideFest at Seattle Center.

For people that are parking, I suggest you get down to Seattle as early as possible because parking will be an absolute NIGHTMARE. Try to carpool or bus if you can. If not, park near Seattle Center and walk or take the monorail to Westlake.

PrideFest Info:

If you don't want to watch the parade, PrideFest starts at noon (while the parade is still going on) and runs until 8pm officially. After that, the general 21+ pride crowd heads up to Capitol Hill and hits the bars. I'm still under 21 so I will not be joining those that are.

This is located all over the Seattle Center area. The physical address is 305 Harrison St., Seattle.

We should meet up with everyone around 1:00 pm between the big fountain ("International Fountain", beween Key Arena and the Center House (now called The Armory)) and McCaw Hall, under the trees in the shade. After we have a good group, we can get suited up and derp around for a few hours.

To find the exact place I'm talking about, type this into Google Maps: (47.623064,-122.352109)

Bring cash money. There will be all sorts of vendors (food, shirts, etc.) and everything is usually overpriced.

For those suiting, it will be 80-90 degrees and sunny on Sunday. Please keep that in mind and bring water and other cooling items with you. It would be really bad to get a heat stroke on such a fun day.

For the non-suiters, sunscreen and water are your friends. :)

I can't wait to see you all there!
