Image title

Sure, it’s tempting to create your own firework show in your neighborhood, but personal fireworks are banned in Seattle (and many of the surrounding cities for that matter) and it just isn’t worth risking damage to homes and personal injury. The powers that be are not killjoys, they just want to keep everyone safe. We got the scoop on where to go instead this year. It’s a win-win for everybody.



Seattle Cancer Care Alliance Seafair Summer 4th - Gas Works Park
2101 N. Northlake Way, Seattle, WA 98103


Located at Gasworks Park, this fun family event begins at 12:00 noon and ends when the cows come home (or after the fireworks show – whichever happens first). Admission is free, however, if you want the best views of the fireworks over Lake Union, you’ll need to cough up $40-$60 for reserved seating that “guarantees” fantastic views. And the display will be spectacular as it includes 8,500 pounds of fireworks choreographed to a special Seafair Summer 4th musical score.


Before the big show, families can take part in the many games like sack races, pie-eating contests and other classics. Lots of food and vendor booths will be on hand as well. Live music begins at 2:00 p.m. with the alternative band Exapos, Caspian Coberly Band at 3:30 p.m., Tekla Waterfield at 5:00 p.m., Sassy Black at 6:30 p.m. and the classic tunes of Freddy Pink with five piece rhythm section, and a four piece horn section at 8:00 p.m.


As for the fireworks, the show is said to begin with hundreds of whites strobes floating on the water. Then, new displays will be lit including colorful dahlias, whirling doremis and silver flying dragons. The finale is said to cover over 1000 feet in elevation covering an area close to 1500 feet across. Click here for tickets.
