It’s that time of year again for burgers, dogs, and fireworks. As always, the City of Everett is hosting Thunder on the Bay at Legion Park. The annual free festival begins at 3:00 pm and ends when the fireworks are over. There is NO PARKING at Legion Field. But…there are free shuttles running every five minutes from Everett Community College along with free parking at EVCC. See map: Everett 4th EVCC Shuttle Info. 

Yes, you can bring your “stuff” on the shuttle, including Rover. He/she must be on a leash and have a muzzle for the ride, service animals excepted. Coolers, chairs and whatever else you can tote are also allowed, with the exception of flammables. Paratransit approved customers may book their shuttle ride now. To book your Paratransit ride for the fireworks celebration, call 425-257-8801. 

Don’t eat too much before you come though, there are twice as many food trucks this year and a double-sized beer garden next to the stage with a view of the fireworks. Imagine Children’s Museum will have activities for the kids. 

The music is back with an incredible line-up: 

Massy Ferguson 4:00 – 5:30 pm

Lady “A” 6:00 – 7:30 pm

Eden 8:00 – 10 pm 

As always KXA/KRKO Radio will provide interim music and broadcast the fireworks show live on 1520 AM/101.1FM or on the KXA Mobile App. Stop by our booth for fun, stickers and more.

While the weather is looking great, it cools down in the evening. Bring jackets and ear protection for the little ones. And as always, have fun and have a designated driver in the event you have a lot of fun. For more information see Everett 4th.

There are other viewing options in Everett too, though not free. You might consider Rock the Fourth or 4th of July Waterfront Party 2022.

Many other neighboring cities also have great celebrations if you don’t want to drive as far. Marysville 4th is always fun with contests and activities and their own great waterfront fireworks display at Ebey Park. They were the ones that made it happen during the pandemic!

Smaller communities including Arlington, Stanwood, Lake Stevens, and Monroe also have a party going on. Check you local cities for their information.

See you there!
