The 32nd annual Fremont Fair and Solstice Parade returns this weekend after a hiatus of three years due to the pandemic.

The fair celebrates the longest day of the year: the weekend of the summer solstice, this year on June 21, and is famous for its naked bicyclists.

A parade will take place starting at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 18 going from Third Ave up to 36th street and ending at the Fremont Fair.

Should Dori ride in the Fremont Solstice Parade or dine with Jay?

Over 60 floats, stilt walkers, musicians, dancers, and even puppets from across the Seattle community will participate in the parade.

The event is put on by the Fremont Arts Council and includes a fair with 300 vendors, two concert venues, food trucks, and a beer garden across six city blocks.

The fair will run from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
