Parade, pirates in Terrace

Seafair pirates, clowns, drill teams, dancers, floats and classic cars kick off the annual Tour de Terrace tonight as an old-time parade rolls down 56th Avenue West north to the Evergreen Playfield in Mountlake Terrace.

The 18th annual parade is scheduled to begin at 7 tonight and starts with a demonstration by the Seattle Police Motorcycle Drill Team. The Grand Marshal is Michael Reagan, founder of the Fallen Heroes Project.

The Tour de Terrace Parade is always held the evening before the “Seattle Torchlight Parade” and is a little bit like a big dress rehearsal.

Each year also features a carnival, food booths and live music today through Sunday.

Also planned Saturday is a pancake breakfast from 8 a.m. to noon; classic car, truck and motorcycle show from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and a fireworks show at about 10 p.m.

The music schedule:


8:30 p.m., TimeSlip, classic rock


Noon to 1:40 p.m., Scott Lindenmuth, jazz fusion

2 to 3:40 p.m., The Popoffs, pop and rock

4 to 5:40 p.m., Latigo Lace, new country

6 to 7:40 p.m., Elvis with Tracy Alan Moore

8 to 11 p.m., Red Hot Blues Sisters, blues


Noon to 1:40 p.m., Dudley Taft, Texas blues guitar
