As more and more events continue to return in a post-pandemic world, Everett’s Fourth of July Parade is gracing Colby Avenue once again. Brought back to life by a volunteer committee spearheaded by Former Everett City Council member Scott Bader, the parade officially begins at 11:00 AM at the intersection of 25th Street and Colby Avenue before winding from Wall Street to Wetmore Avenue and back to 25th Street. You can view the parade route to the left. Before the parade, the Seattle Cossacks Motorcycle Stunt and Drill Team will be performing daring feats, a tradition of theirs since 1938.

Parade-goers can park at Everett Station on 3201 Smith Avenue in downtown Everett. Free Everett Transit bus rides will be provided to the July 4th parade. Buses will leave Everett Station every 5 minutes from 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM before the parade and from noon to 1:00 PM after the parade.

After the parade the party keeps going! Hotel Indigo on the Everett Waterfront is holding their third annual Fourth

of July Waterfront Party with a backyard BBQ starting at 5:00 PM with lawn games and live music by Free Rain and a big conclusion with Everett’s 4th of July Fireworks show. Entry is $10 for adults and is complimentary for children 12 and under. More details can be found by clicking here.

Speaking of fireworks, Legion Park will be buzzing with activity with Everett’s July Fourth Festival. The festival begins at 3:00 PM and lasts all the way until the Thunder on the Bay fireworks show around 10:30 PM. Legion Park is just one of the many locations that attendees can watch the fireworks from. Grand Avenue Park, the Port of Everett and Harborview Park all offer great views of the show.
