Hometown: Seafair in Seattle Kicks Off with Starbucks

Starbucks stores in the Seattle area were more festive than usual with the addition of clowns and pirates. Seafair, the Seattle area’s premier summer festival, began (June 15) with personalities visiting several stores throughout the day.

For the Seafair Summer Kickoff Presented by Starbucks, customers were invited to meet Seafair personalities at several locations. Starbucks also hosted a star-studded ceremony at Westlake Center Plaza to introduce the new King Neptune and Queen Alcyone followed by a special knighting, refreshments and photo opportunities.

Starbucks will continue the fun throughout the summer with additional Seafair events. Every Wednesday from 2-4 p.m. Seafair personalities will visit a different Starbucks location across the city. A complete schedule of appearances can be found at www.seafair.com/starbucks.
