“True-blue” (and even fair-weather) Seahawk fans are invited to Kirkland’s Marina Park on Saturday, Jan. 18, for a “12th Man Fan Fair.”
The fan fair is in honor of the Seattle Seahawks advancing into the NFC championship game against the San Francisco 49ers to be held on Sunday, Jan. 19, 2014.
Beginning at 3:30 p.m., Kirkland Mayor Amy Walen and fellow city council members will raise a “12th Man” flag to a drum roll by the Seahawks Blue Thunder.
The event will begin at the Plaza of Champions, at Marina Park, 25 Lakeshore Plaza Drive.
Following the raising of the flag, fans are to form the number 12 on the beach for a photograph and video to be shared with media.
Fans can take their picture with Blitz, the official team mascot and with inflatable Seahawks players.
The city will organize a bonfire on the beach. Come dressed in your best Seahawks fan costume to be judged by local officials. Activities and promotional materials will be provided by Sea Hawkers Booster Club the at the Marina Park pavilion throughout the event.
Kirkland fans are encouraged to share their cheers, fan “selfies,” and pictures of where their “12th Man” flags are displayed on the city’s Explore Kirkland Facebook site: www.facebook.com/explorekirkland.
Kirkland restaurants will be offering food and beverage game-day specials and airing the game on Jan. 19, which starts at 3:30 p.m.
Event goers are encouraged to plan for their parking in advance. For public parking, including the Kirkland Municipal Garage, go to www.kirklandwa.gov/parking.
