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
We’re excited to welcome all jumpers and spectators back to Seward this weekend for the 32 annual Seward Polar Bear Jump! This year’s event is on track to raise more than $55,000 for the American Cancer Society.
On Saturday, Jan. 27 at 11:30 am, a parade will lead jumpers from the American Legion (5th Ave. and Jefferson St.) along a mile-long route to the Seward Boat Harbor. The Polar Bear Jump begins at 12:30 pm.
