Vice President Kamala Harris is expected to land Saturday at King County International Airport-Boeing Field. The vice president will be in Seattle for a few hours to headline a pair of campaign fundraising events.


Her Boeing C-32, known as Air Force Two, is expected to land 3:30 p.m. Saturday and depart shortly after 7 p.m. from the Georgetown airport, according to the vice president's public schedule released Friday night by the White House.


KCIA-Boeing Field has a history of being the first Seattle stop for many White House visitors.


Roads in Georgetown and nearby highways, including those leading to West Seattle, may be blocked for the vice president's motorcade. Drivers can expect traffic delays. Secret Service does not disclose the exact route it will take. Three weeks ago, Interstate 5 was shut down on a late Friday afternoon for President Joe Biden's visit.


Harris will headline a reception hosted by Melissa and Peter Evans with the cheapest ticket going for $6,600, according to an invitation reported by the Northwest Progressive Institute's Cascadia Advocate. General admission for a second evening event begins at $500 and goes up to $50,000, according to KUOW. Proceeds will benefit the Biden Victory Fund.


Earlier in May, President Joe Biden spoke to donors at a downtown hotel in Seattle and a private home in Medina the following day. Air Force One flew in and out of Sea-Tac International Airport.


Harris last visited Seattle in August when she highlighted clean energy and the Inflation Reduction Act with a visit to the construction and energy services company McKinstry just north of Georgetown. She also flew in and out of KCIA-Boeing Field for that trip. A Bellevue Police motorcycle officer in the motorcade was seriously injured when he slid on hot asphalt on the S Bailey Street I-5 entrance ramp and fell 50 feet onto the road below.
