Pike Up! Parade & Flag Raising to Raise the Roof on the New MarketFront

Posted September 29, 2014

Pike Up web graphic squareJoin us on October 30, at noon, for the Pike Up! Parade, a community-wide event to kick off the effort to raise the roof on the new Pike Place MarketFront. Find out how you can leave your legacy on the final piece of the historic Market district with a personalized Piggybank Hoofprint or Market Charm.

An event almost as unique as Pike Place Market itself, the Pike Up! Parade will feature a boisterous unfurling of the Pike Up! Flag and a march of the flag down Pike Place by Market community members, including: buskers, chefs, crafters, farmers, fishmongers, improv performers, merchants, performers, residents, and YOU!

Led by a merry band of Market buskers, the colorful and noisy parade will make its way from Rachel the Piggybank to the Public Market sign at Pine St. There, we’ll raise the Pike Up! Flag up a 50-foot flagpole temporarily installed just for the parade.

After we’ve raised the Pike Up! flag, the Master of Ceremonies will unveil the unique opportunity to write your name into the history of the MarketFront and to support Pike Place Market. For the first time in 20 years, Market supporters will have the opportunity to engrave a name or personal message onto a path of Piggybank Hoofprints or a ribbon of Market Charms that will dance and shine on the new MarketFront overlooking Puget Sound. One Hoofprint, or Charm alone will be uniquely yours. Together, they will raise the roof on the final piece of Pike Place Market, the MarketFront.

Join us on Oct. 30 to Pike Up!

Sign up to WIN the first hoofprint on the MarketFront! Winner will be announced at the flag raising.
