The Fremont Solstice Parade

The Fremont Summer Solstice Parade is an event that you hear a great deal about as a Seattle-ite…somehow, I have managed to miss it…until this afternoon.   I met up with fellow bloggers Ardell and Deborah Burns, who like me, had never witnessed naked bicyclist (hopefully) painted creatively.   Don’t worry…I’ll only post a few photos.


The event took place along Gasworks Park in the Fremont neighborhood in Seattle and benefits Solid Ground.   Believe it or not, this was a very family event.  I overheard a little girl ask her Dad (both spectators), "Dad, have you ever been in a parade like this?"  He said, "No".


I missed the Seattle Art Car show and many of the other fair events…after a hundred or so bikers AND the parade…I was ready to call it a day! 


The Fremont Fair continues on Sunday.   If you don’t have plans for Father’s Day…here’s something to consider.


  1. Hi Rhonda, that was fun and it looks like you got your camera to give up it’s photos to your computer! Nice photos!

  2. Deborah, that was fun. Next summer when the parade rolls around and someone ask if we have ever been to the Fremont Fair, we can just casually reply, “Oh yes…been there, done that”.
