Pat Cashman-resizedPat Cashman, former cast member of KING 5’s “Almost Live” and current cast member of “The 206,” will be the grand marshal of the 63rd annual Greenwood Seafair Parade. With the motto “Funny in Greenwood,” the parade runs from 6-8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 24.

“I’m honored to be asked to be Grand Marshal for the annual parade in the greatest neighborhood in Seattle,” Cashman said in a press release. “This will actually be my second time — as I was Grand Marshal several years ago. I thank the community for their kind invitation, wonderful hospitality — and short memory.”

The Greenwood parade is the oldest neighborhood Seafair-sanctioned parade in the region. The route runs south along Greenwood Avenue North from North 95th Street to North 85th Street, and then heads west to 6th Avenue Northwest.

Thousands of people line the route to see the more than 100 entrants, including bands, drill teams, horses, dogs, floats, pirates and plenty of cute kids.
