    If Lake Washington hosts all the action on the water, then Genesee Park is the place for fun on land. This year Seafair has added more games, more entertainment, more everything

    Highlights include:
    The military returns with free flight simulators, climbing walls and the opportunity to compete in a chin up contest against a highly trained U.S. Marine.
    Hydro 101 is an interactive tent that will help educate people on hydroplane racing and display the parts and gear that makes it all possible. The Hydro 101 tent will feature a real life Mannequin in a drivers suit, an F1 hydroplane engine and interactive videos in which patrons can further their knowledge of the sport. The booth will be in Genesee Park throughout Seafair weekend and is open to the public.
    A brand new Waterslide in Genesee Park!
    • Meet KIRO 7 Eyewitness News anchors and reporters at the KIRO 7 booth on Seafair Weekend from Saturday, August 4 to Sunday, August 5. The KIRO 7 booth will be located near the hydroplane pit entrance. Get your picture taken at the KIRO 7 news desk! 
    A full list will be posted in June. 
    For those 21 and over, Seafair offers three unique beer gardens serving up ice cold Budweiser, Bud Light and other refreshing beverages. 
    Visit the South Turn "It's just a Backyard Beer Garden" and relish in the simple pleasures of enjoying an ice cold Budweiser with good friends along the shores of Lake Washington.
    Relax like a winner in the North Turn "Hydro Zone" and watch the champions cross the finish line all weekend long. 
    Or simply enjoy the lush shade in the Genesee Park Beer Garden adjacent to the concert stage for live music!
