On the Fourth of July, the population of Seward swells from around 2,500 to a reported 30,000. Main Street is completely blocked off to traffic and the streets fill with people. Most come to run in or watch the Mt. Marathon Race, while others come to enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery in the world and take part in the festivities.
Seward’s annual July 4th celebration features a packed holiday schedule of special events, presentations, contests, and community gatherings
Join us for a family-friendly holiday celebration Thursday, Nov. 30! The annual tree lighting will take place outside the SeaLife Center at 5:45 pm, followed by Santa’s arrival.
Door open at 6 pm for the party hosted by the Alaska SeaLife Center. There will be cookie decorating, crafts, snacks and photos with Santa.
At 6 pm and 7 pm, enjoy a joint performance by the Seward Senior Center and Port City Players. Revels ’17 offers 30 minutes of music and narrative based on the memories of Seward seniors.
Just steps away, shops in Seward’s historic downtown will be staying open until 8 pm and offering holiday specials for locals.
See you Thursday for the holiday fun!
