America has been sipping on liber-tea since 1776. So, just like our forefather’s, head to the bay for the Everett Fourth of July Thunder on the Bay fireworks show at Legion Memorial Park.

With the new firework ban for unincorporated southwest Snohomish County, including Brier, Edmonds, Everett, Lynwood, Mill Creek, Mountlake Terrace, Mukilteo and Woodway, many people will be looking for a place to watch the magic. The festival starts at 3 p.m. and ends after the fireworks show at about 10:30 p.m.

Back in February of this year, the Everett City Council revived its funding for the Everett fireworks show with a whopping $72,000, guaranteeing to put on a special performance over Port Gardner Bay.

According to Visit Everett, there is no parking at Legion Memorial Park for the event. Everett Transit will be providing free shuttle service to and from the park. The shuttle will pick up in front of the Walt Price Fitness Center at Everett Community College starting at 3 p.m. and will continue through the end of the fireworks show.

Spend the day with your family, friends, and neighbors enjoying bountiful activities for all ages such as live music, food trucks, and a beer garden. In addition to the ball fields and playground, the Imagine Children’s Museum will have kid-friendly activities for all to enjoy.

For anyone 21+, the Everett Music Initiative will have a beer garden filled with local brevvies to enjoy during the bands performances. Finish the day celebrating with the 22-minute firework show by tuning into Classic Country KXA at FM 101.1, AM 1520, or on our free mobile app to listen to the performance and indepen-dance the night away!
