On Sunday, May 6, we invite everyone to take part in Seattle’s largest annual tribute to World War II heroes by participating in the Immortal Regiment World War II Memorial Walk and the Russian-American Cultural Festival dedicated to American and Soviet World War II veterans.
The Immortal Regiment Memorial Walk is an international, family-friendly public march, held annually in major cities around the world to commemorate the veterans and celebrate Allied Victory in World War II. Participants of the walk carry portraits of World War II veterans (as displayed in the image above).
In Seattle, the World War II Memorial Walk stretches from Occidental Square to the Space Needle, with a brief carnation-laying ceremony at the Benaroya Hall World War II Veteran Memorial Wall. It’s important to note that the walk is sanctioned by the City of Seattle and accommodated by the Seattle Police, who produce the necessary street closures along the route of the annual march.
Upon arrival at the Space Needle participants are treated to a commemorative concert as part of the Russian-American Cultural Festival dedicated to the World War II veterans of both countries, who fought as allies in that fateful war. The Festival also features traditional foods from the republics of the former Soviet Union as well as cultural souvenirs and works of art.
