The most well-known summer event in the Northwest is Seafair Weekend Festival. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, it was postponed for two years. Now, with the Blue Angels and a tonne of other things to see and do near Lake Washington, it is back. It’s not a free event if you’re unfamiliar with Seafair. You may buy passes here.
Adult admission fees start at $35 and go all the way up to $160 for premium weekend passes per person.
