EVERETT, Wash. – Community members are invited to celebrate July Fourth with the City of Everett. The celebration begins at Legion Memorial Park at 3 p.m. and fireworks begin at 10 p.m.
“We have much to celebrate and be thankful for this July Fourth,” said Everett Mayor Cassie Franklin. “Though our celebration will be smaller this year, we’ve put together a fun, welcoming event for Everett residents of all ages to enjoy with food trucks, festivities and fireworks.”
The event will include live entertainment, a beer garden, food trucks and activities for people of all ages leading up to the Thunder on the Bay fireworks show, which will light up the sky at 10 p.m. over Port Gardner Bay. Attendees are expected to follow state public health guidelines for a safe and healthy experience.
“We’re excited to host events and create fun experiences for people again,” said Tyler Chism, the City’s placemaking coordinator. “People are going to have a great time watching the fireworks and rocking out to bands with food and fun for the whole family.”
There will be limited parking available at Legion Memorial Park on July 4. Everett Transit will provide free shuttles starting at 3 p.m. to and from Legion Park from Everett Community College if pandemic-related capacity restrictions are relaxed as expected on June 30. Community members are also encouraged to use alternative forms of transportation like bikes, scooters or rideshare services such as Lyft and Uber.
The July Fourth celebration is made possible thanks to presenting sponsor Peoples Bank, City staff and departments, community volunteers, the Lodging Tax Advisory Committee and other community partnerships and sponsors.
Additional events including Rock The Fourth put on by the Everett Music Initiative at the waterfront and the Delta Neighborhood’s event at Jackson Park offer other options to enjoy the fireworks.
