It’s Tour de Terrace week!

The 20-year anniversary edition of the Mountlake Terrace festival begins on Friday, July 26 at the Evergreen Playfield, 22205-56th Ave. W., opening to the public at noon. Davis Amusements will begin carnival ride and game operations at 1 p.m.; many of the festival food booths will open at 2 p.m.; the street fair on 222nd Street Southwest officially begins at 4 p.m. and the beer garden begins pouring Big E Ales at 5 p.m.

The festival wraps up on Sunday afternoon, July 28, at 6 p.m.

Tour de Terrace offers live music and entertainment on the main stage all weekend long, starting with Sly Mr. Y and TimeSlip at approximately 8:30 p.m. on Friday. The stage entertainment begins following the conclusion of the Tour de Terrace parade that runs north on 56th Avenue West between 234th Street Southwest to approximately 222nd Street Southwest. The parade gets rolling with Seattle Police Department Motorcycle Drill Team members displaying their skills at 6:45 p.m.

As a Seafair-sanctioned festival, the Tour de Terrace parade draws plenty of fan favorites from the Seattle organization, including the Seafair Pirates, Seafair Clowns, and many groups and entries that will be part of the Seafair Torchlight Parade scheduled for the following night in downtown Seattle.

TV and radio personality Danny Bonaduce, best known for his role on the early 1970s television show “The Partridge Family,” will serve as the Grand Marshal of this year’s Tour de Terrace parade.

Tour de Terrace will include many special events during its three-day run in Mountlake Terrace. A 5K fun run/walk, a car/truck/motorcycle show, and a fireworks display are all scheduled for Saturday; a pancake breakfast takes place both Saturday and Sunday mornings.
