There is no better community activity over the Summer than a good old-fashioned July 4th celebration. And, if you live on the Eastside, you have plenty of options to pick and choose the event that’s best for you and your family. Below is a list of the major celebrations that have fireworks for public viewing. Remember, fireworks are illegal in most cities in King County so be safe. Admission is free to each one so go early, stay late and celebrate!

The Eastside’s largest Independence Day celebration will attract over 60,000 people who will gather to enjoy live music, kid’s activities, a variety of food options, and family entertainment, all leading up to a spectacular fireworks show set to a rousing performance by the Bellevue Youth Symphony.
