Seattle Maritime Festival Free Family Fun Day
Want to learn to pilot a tugboat or a ferry boat? Try your hand at welding? Fire an emergency flare? Or be in a Survival Suit Race?
Those are part of the more than 30 free hands-on activities planned for the Harley Marine Seattle Maritime Festival Family Fun Day from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 12, at Ballard’s Seattle Maritime Academy, 4455 Shilshole Ave NW – just east of the Ballard Bridge. The Seattle Maritime Academy is part of Seattle Central College.
In addition to the Experience Maritime Activities, there will be music on the Port of Seattle/KEXP Entertainment Stage, food trucks, fire boat tours, photo booth, and other events. The festival, which is Seattle’s largest maritime industry celebration, is presented by the Seattle Propeller Club and Port of Seattle.
