been enjoyed by our residents and others in and around the greater Seattle area
for over 75 years. We continue to promote our community at 8 regional
parades with our float and Junior and Senior Courts.
Summer Festival advertises and coordinates affordable entertainment by local
service clubs and others, which is designed for children, teens and
adults. Events, such as the Pirates
Landing on Alki, Concert in the Park, and the American Legion Parade, provide
wonderful summertime fun.

outstanding young women earn a place on the Senior Court and are given an
academic scholarship based on their community service, essay writing, speaking

Western Washington and support community service projects year round. The following summer the queen represents
West Seattle in the Miss Seafair Scholarship Program.
Seattle Hi-Yu is run entirely by volunteers.
We work on fundraisers throughout the year to help supplement the
program. Two of our main events are the Annual Gala and our annual sale of Christmas Ornaments, made by
local glass artists.
the years the support we have received from the business community has been the
