For over 60 years Wallingford has played host to the longest running Seafair Parade, known as the Kiddie Parade. Families come from far and near to watch, participate in and enjoy this traditional event. This year, our parade will be held on Saturday July 6th beginning at 11AM.
The Parade is growing and expanding this year and has been renamed the ‘Wallingford Family’ Parade and Festival, to reflect the importance of our collective neighborhood family. The parade will still feature kids as major participants but will also include families and local businesses. Drill teams, local marching bands and family oriented organizations will be represented in the Parade.
The Parade will be followed by the ‘Wallingford Family’ Festival at the Meridian Park adjacent to the Good Shepherd Center beginning at 12PM and running through 5PM. The Festival portion of the day will include local vendors selling handicrafts, booths featuring demonstrations and food vendors. There will also be plenty of activities for kids, including bouncy houses and games. Two stages will present the music of local bands and kids’ music groups. Plenty of fun and variety for all our Wallingford Family!
