Everett’s Fourth of July Festival & Fireworks

The city of Everett always likes to kick off its Fourth of July celebrations with a bang, and what better way to start the festivities than with the famous Everett’s Fourth of July Parade, which has been held nearly every year since 1909. The parade will begin in downtown Everett at 11 a.m., making its way through town and onward to more festivities.

Celebration goers will then make their way over to Legion Memorial Park for the Fourth of July Festival, beginning at 3 p.m., where they’ll enjoy live music, food trucks, kid-friendly activities brought to residents by the Imagine Children’s Museum, and an annual beer garden hosted by the Everett Music Initiative for the adults. Don’t forget to stick around for the grand finale, the annual  Thunder on the Bay Fireworks Show, beginning at 10 p.m. This is one Fourth of July Celebration you won’t want to miss out on!

Edmonds Fourth of July Parade

Downtown Edmonds will be holding its own Edmonds Fourth of July Parade, starting on Main Street and Fifth Avenue at noon and running until 2 p.m. Like Everett, the city has been holding its annual parade celebration for over a hundred years now, with it beginning back in 1907 when it was produced by the newly founded Edmonds Chamber of Commerce, which still puts on the event to this day.

Party-goers to the free event can expect to see fellow community members who register to participate in the parade walk, roll, or dance their way through the city streets, all while showcasing their patriotism. In addition to the main parade, there will also be a Beat Brackett 5k & 1k held that same day at 8 a.m. before the festivities and a Children’s Parade at 11:30 a.m. that is free to join; those interested can register at the Ace Hardware parking lot on Fifth Avenue between 9:30 and 11:15 a.m. the day of the event.
