Seafare, Seattle's summer series of special events that begins in June and runs well into August has been held annually since 1949. Seafair's primary festivities include a torchlight run and parade, ship tours, hydroplane races, and an air show from July 25 to August 2, 2015. Other scheduled Seafair events during the summer include a milk carton derby, a triathlon, a scholarship pageant, and a rock-n-roll marathon. The Seafair fun continues throughout much of Seattle's summer, providing a selection of different things to do each week. The revelry includes festivals, parades, and community events, held in locales throughout the Seattle metropolitan area. These special events celebrate everything from African, Hispanic, or Filipino culture to whaling and seafood.
