SEATTLE – For the fourth year in a row, Seattle Seahawks fans are invited to a pregame rally aboard one of Washington’s ferries! This year those aboard the floating pep rally will have the chance to compete for the title of “Most Decked Out Seahawks Fan.”

On Thursday, Nov. 15, Seahawks fans are invited to wear team colors and bring their stadium voices aboard the 2:55 p.m. Bainbridge to Seattle sailing as they make their way to the 5:20 p.m. game against the Green Bay Packers.

The most ‘decked out fan’ will win a $100 gift certificate to the NFL Shop, courtesy of Washington State Ferries’ Colman Dock Project contractor Hoffman-Pacific, and a tour of the wheelhouse.

Fans are encouraged to beat the post-game scramble by checking the current sailing schedule and buying ferry tickets in advance for the return trip home.

Washington State Ferries, a division of the Washington State Department of Transportation, is the largest ferry system in the U.S. and safely and efficiently carries 25 million people a year through some of the most majestic scenery in the world.  For breaking news and the latest information, follow WSF on Twitter.
