Ballard Seafood Fest
Ballard's past is celebrated every July with its Seafood Fest which honors the Scandinavian community and the fishing industry that built the neighborhood years ago. Explore the festival which will offer music, games, and of course seafood to meet all your fishy desires. Tumble Swede will have a booth which will offer up their latest creation, lobster tail corndogs. And if you're feeling the Viking inside of you wanting to be let out, compete in a lutefisk eating competition. If you don't know what that is then you're probably better for it.
