"The sounds of Seafair."
JOEY RASMUSSON, Wenatchee:
"The planes. Especially the Patriots. They did a barrel-role 360. That was cool."
JEF JAISUN, Seattle:
"The nostalgia. This is what you used to do with your dad. It was the only game in town. I was 12 riding my bike down to the [hydroplane] pits. Bill Muncie, Miro Slovic, Jack Ragis, those guys were like rock stars."
RUSTY WILLIAMS, Seattle
"As a lifelong Seattleite, I enjoy preserving the long time tradition of Seattle's premier summertime celebration: Coming down the night before, drinking my @$$ off, and sleeping through the races."
