One year nearly to the day after kickstarting a new chapter of growth for the Themed Entertainment Association in the Pacific Northwest with a small mixer in a private residence in Seattle, we held our biggest event yet—a full evening of activity and experiences at Seattle’s historic Pier 57.
The idea of an event at Pier 57 was planted even before TEA began regular programming of activities in the region. Following a period of massive investment and big dreams put into action that resulted in the addition of The Seattle Great Wheel and the Wings Over Washington flying theater attraction, Pier 57 had been transformed, though not at the expense of its history and nostalgic characteristics.
Thanks to Pier 57 and owner/operator Kyle Griffith, along with sponsors Super 78 and Dynamic Attractions, guests enjoyed delicious food and wine, good company made up of many of Seattle’s big-hitters, rides on the two attractions, and a behind-the-scenes presentation of the pier’s impressive evolution.
Our report on the night’s festivities is live on the TEA blog.
