Mayor Jim Ferrell is issuing a proclamation declaring Friday, Jan. 17 as Blue Friday in Federal Way to show the community’s support for the Seattle Seahawks in their Sunday NFC Conference Championship game against the San Francisco 49ers.

The mayor invites Federal Way residents to show their Seahawks pride by joining the mayor, City Council and city staff at 3 p.m. Friday, Jan. 17 at City Hall to hoist the 12th man flag and display team colors.

Former Seahawks wide receiver Paul Johns will attend the event, along with the Decatur High School pep band. The first 150 people who get to the event will receive a free bag of Skittles - a favorite football treat of Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch.

Fans are encouraged to wear jerseys and other team gear for a group picture to be taken at City Hall.

Fans will meet in front of City Hall at 3 p.m., with the flag raising and photo taking place immediately. Let’s send the Seahawks into Sunday’s game with the message that Federal Way is behind our team.

Federal Way City Hall is located at 33325 Eighth Ave. S., Federal Way.
