Now in it’s 96th year, the city of Burien’s 4th of July parade is the oldest and one of the best attended in King County.

Every year, thousands of spectators gather along the parade route in downtown Burien to see marching bands, floats, the Seafair pirates, and much more!

The parade starts at 3 p.m. and runs approximately 2 hours.

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone out enjoying our beautiful city this 4th of July. Many local restaurants and businesses are planning to stay open especially for the parade and will be offering specials. Please note that the parade route has changed for 2017
