Seward set for annual 4th of July festivities


At least during the upcoming Independence Day weekend, the City of Seward will become the fourth largest city in the state. More than 30,000 revelers are expected to visit the jewel of the eastern Kenai Peninsula over the next few days to take part in the annual Mount Marathon Race and participate in other July 4th activities.

The fun will kick off on Friday, June 30, when food and craft booths begin setting up on Adams and Washington streets.

The main action will begin early Tuesday morning when the Junior Mount Marathon Race gets under way at 9 a.m. The first wave of the women's Mount Marathon Race will start at 11 a.m., and the second wave at 11:05 a.m.

The annual all-American parade, with the theme of "Like a Firework," will get started at 1 p.m. The parade will begin on Jefferson Street before turning down Fourth Avenue.

The first wave of the men's Mount Marathon Race will begin at 2 p.m. The second wave will start at 2:05 p.m.

The awards ceremony will be held at 6 p.m. in the AVTEC gym.
