Summer in Seattle kicks off every year with Seafair, a ten-week annual non-profit festival that starts mid-June. Seafair began in 1950 and now hosts 75 events and attracts two million people.
This popular festival features the Boeing Seafair Air Show with the famous Blue Angels, and the world’s fastest racing boats with the H1 Unlimited Hydroplane Races. We went to Seattle’s historic Lake Washington to get up close and witness high speeds in the air and on the water. Watch the story to find out just how fast they go.
