PRESS RELEASE

This year’s Tour will give visitors the unique chance to visit and discover the colorful history of 13 floating homes hidden along the seldom visited banks of Portage Bay.  Tickets are limited and go on sale July 25th through Brown Paper Tickets (www.brownpapertickets.com). Ticket price is $40.00. Capacity is limited so advance purchase is highly recommended. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Seattle Floating Homes Association and its mission to protect, preserve and promote the vitality of Seattle’s historic floating homes community through education, advocacy, environmental stewardship and collaboration.

Unlike tours of the past where you get to explore the homes surrounding all the hustle and bustle of Lake Union, the 2016 tour will offer a limited number of guests a once in a lifetime chance to visit the seldom seen floating homes along the hidden and tranquil banks of Portage Bay.  The tour will offer a unique mix of old and new architecture with a history all of their own. It will be a chance to experience part of Seattle’s floating home culture and why as one of Seattle’s unique jewels it sets Seattle apart from other cities in the world.

You will come away with an appreciation of why Seattle’s floating home owners cherish their lifestyle and why they have become known as the  “Stewards of Lake” as they protect the nature and animal habitat the docks, homes and surrounding foliage the owners care for and provide.  Nowhere else in the world will you find the coexistence of wildlife and city life blending so harmoniously. We look forward to having you as our guest!
