Just before noon on Monday Shoreline got a preview of the parade, including the guided-missile cruiser USS Mobile Bay (CG 53) and the guided-missile destroyer USS Spruance (DDG 111).

Sunday night just after 8pm the team of the Blue Angels flew by over Puget Sound. They will be performing (and scaring pets!) this week.

The aerobatic event is in its 70th year and takes place at Genesee Park on Lake Washington.

The U.S. Navy flight demonstration squadron will hold two separate practices and three days of performances:
  • Thursday, August 1, from 11am to 1pm and
  • Thursday, August 1, from 2:30pm to 3:30pm.
  • Official performances are from 3pm to 4pm daily from Friday, August 2 through Sunday, August 4.
  • Monday more of the Navy’s contribution to Seafair passed by on the water

Seafair Fleet Week includes the Parade of Ships, where the Fleet makes its entrance between 1:15 and 2:00pm into Elliott Bay accompanied by the spray of the Seattle Fire Department boat and Ship Tours where guests can go aboard Navy and Coast Guard vessels.

Ships from the U.S. Navy, U.S Coast Guard and Royal Canadian Navy are docked at piers along the Seattle waterfront for the public to tour and enjoy. More information on Fleet Week and the Parade of Ships is available here.
