The day is referred to simply as “Syttende Mai” (17th of May) and Ballard hosts a great parade!  Poulsbo, another local Scandinavian community, easy to access by boat, also has a parade and celebration.

Opening Day at Montlake Cut-May 4th

Published by under Shilshole Neighbors

The Seattle Yacht Club has put on an Opening Day of Boating Season Parade since 1920.  It’s a great event to take the family to and sit along the Montlake Cut or, take your boat in and tie to the log boom on the north side or anchor in the south-side viewing area!  In the morning are the Windermere Cup crew races.  The boat parade is from noon to 3.  Since the Cut is closed Sat. til after the parade, most boaters arrive Thur or Fri to get a spot and stay til Sunday to come home. It’s quite a show at the locks as they all lock through trying to leave the lake Sat eve or Sunday!
