DETAILS

It’s always sad when summer has to come to an end in Seattle, but it’s great when it can go out with a bang! Seafair Weekend returns for its 66th year with a weekend packed with airplanes, hydroplanes, powerboats, waterskiing and more!

Do you love the US Navy Blue Angels? Of course you do! The Angels return to Seattle again this year year, along with the Flying Heritage Collection, the US Coast Guard, the Lucas Oil Airshow, the Team Oracle stunt plane and an A-10 flyover. For a complete schedule of appearances and times, check the schedule on the Seafair website.

The H1 Unlimited Hydroplanes return to Seafair Weekend, roaring in at over 200 MPH! Every year the hydroplanes seem to get faster and it seems like every race is a photo finish. This year promises to be even faster, with new entries and past competitors vying for victory. This year the fan experience has been greatly enriched as well. With new apps for virtually every smartphone, live streaming video from the course and cockpit is available to everyone, free of charge.

Bolt on the Blue Water Ski Races are a new event at Seafair Weekend are you aren’t going to want to miss it! Reaching speeds of over 100 MPH, you won’t believe how fast these racers are flying over the lake with just a ski separating them from the water. Check out the 20th annual World Water Ski Racing Championships spread over all three days of Seafair Weekend.

The USF1 Powerboats might be smaller than the H1 Unlimited Hydroplanes, but they are just as fun to watch race! With over 400 horsepower pushing them to over 155 MPH, these boats practically float on top of the water. Check out the official schedule for details!
