Seahawks on parade tomorrow…will your kids be there?
Posted on February 4th, 2014 by Sara
With the Seahawk’s huge win on Sunday and a big celebration in store tomorrow, there is so much excitement in the air! People all over Magnolia (and of course, Seattle proper) are basking in the glow of victory. Many of us watched the game with our families, cheering on the Hawks, and we will be there tomorrow, with our kids in tow.
Although Seattle Schools will officially be in session, many parents will be taking their kids out for the day to be a part of the downtown celebration. We thought it would be fun to find out how many Magnolians were planning on heading down to the big party. If you have a moment, please take our survey!

The whole shebang starts at 11 a.m. and will take approximately two hours. The parade will begin just south of Seattle Center at Denny Way (outside the EMP museum), travel south down 4th Avenue through Westlake Park, and finish at the north entrance to CenturyLink Field.
Seahawks players, coaches, staff, the Sea Gals, Blitz, Blue Thunder Drumline, and the Lombardi Trophy will ride military vehicles and Seattle’s “Ride the Ducks” carriers.
Parking will be tight. Plan ahead, carpool, utilize public transportation and arrive early for the day’s events. Don’t forget to wear warm (Seahawks colored) clothing…the forecast calls for sunshine, but temps will be in the mid-20s when the parade kicks off. Wednesday’s high calls for 32 degrees.
The official website for the Hawks has the following info about tomorrow’s festivities:
Tomorrow’s Super Bowl XLVIII victory parade will culminate with a brief championship celebration within the friendly confines of CenturyLink Field featuring Seahawks players, coaches, staff, and the franchise’s first Lombardi Trophy.
Seahawks season-ticket holders have been invited to attend Wednesday’s at-capacity event set to begin at roughly 1 p.m. PT. Fans will be able to watch the team’s victory parade beginning at 11 a.m. on the stadium’s video boards with soda, water, and hot dogs available for purchase at concessions stands throughout. Gates open at 10:30 a.m. with open stadium seating. Season-ticket holders can still print tickets to the event through this evening by visiting their Account Manager.
The adjacent Safeco Field will also open Wednesday to carry a live feed of the victory parade and CenturyLink Field’s on-field presentation on the ballpark’s large video boards. Tickets to Safeco Field are free and available to print on a first-come, first-serve basis right here. Seating at Safeco Field will be general admission with the field’s gates opening at 10:30 a.m.
Parking will be extremely limited at CenturyLink Field, Safeco Field, along the parade route, and its surrounding areas. Carpooling and utilizing public transportation are your best bets here. Wednesday’s forecast calls for a high of 32 degrees and sunshine, so be sure to dress warm and dust off your favorite pair of shades.
All of Wednesday’s activities will be broadcast live by several area news stations, with a large number of viewing locations available along the team’s parade route (4th Avenue). A live stream will also be available here on Seahawks.com.
