Tonight, July 28, there are two events that will likely produce some traffic congestion. The oldest neighborhood Seafair parade in the region, the Greenwood Seafair Parade, will take to the streets while the Seattle Sounders take to the field in a match against the Isidro Metapan. The Seattle Department of Transportation encourages motorists to plan accordingly and consider alternate modes of transportation – the Sounder commuter train, Link light rail, Metro Transit, car pool, bicycle or walk, if feasible.
