Independence Day Celebrations Across The Northwest
There are many July 4th celebrations across the northwest: everything from parades and classic car shows to beer and fireworks. Here are a few you can find on the NWPR Events Calendar.
Ruston Freedom Fair - Fireworks, festivities, and an air show on the Ruston Way waterfront in Tacoma. A perfect chance to watch the fireworks reflected in the water.
July 4th in Ellensburg - Ellensburg marks July 4 not just as Independence Day, but as the 125th anniversary of the great fire of 1889, which destroyed 200 homes.
Joint Base Lewis-McChord Freedom Fest - Carnival rides, games, military displays, and of course the fireworks. Aerial demonstrations starting at 11 a.m. And what's more patriotic than live country music?
Yakima 4th of July Celebration - Celebrate Independence Day at State Fair Park in Yakima. A pie-eating contest, a carnival, and July 4th fireworks - 20 minutes worth!
4th of July Festival of America - A two-day festival beginning the 4th and finishing up on Saturday at the Grand Coulee Dam. Not only is there a fireworks show, but there's a laser-light show too.
Stars and Stripes 4th of July Celebration - Hermiston celebrates July 4th with a full day of live music, games, fireworks, and even a pool party.
4th of July at George, WA (57th Annual) - What's more American than a town called George, Washington? Maybe their July 4th celebration featuring the cherry bomb run, a classic car show, and lots of fireworks.
