KENNEWICK, Wash. — Each offseason, the Seattle Seahawks make their tour of the Northwest to connect with their fanbase and generate excitement for the upcoming season. The 12 Tour is sweeping Southeastern Washington with stops in Yakima and the Tri-Cities through one weekend in mid-June.

As announced by the Seattle Seahawks on June 2, the team will be touring the region from June 17 to 19. That group includes current players and legends, Mascot Blitz, Blue Thunder and the Seahawks Dancers.

Not all of the team’s stops will be publically promoted events. They will visit various Starbucks locations across the area in-between visits to a sports camp in Yakima, a Kennewick flag football camp and an exclusive event for Water2Wine season ticket holders.
