The Colors of Freedom Fly over Everett on the 4th
The 4th of July comes to Everett and Everett celebrates with the ultimate parades, epic fireworks and tons of fun and festivities throughout the day. If you’re visiting, see here what’s in store for you.
There will be two highlights of the Everett celebration – a parade and fireworks. See the Colors of Freedom Parade which starts at 11 am. Be at Colby & Wetmore Aves, between Wall St. & 26th St, bring a lawn chair and grab a front row seat for the best show ever. Watch the colorful and vibrant marching bands parade the streets amid bands playing and confetti. See dance & drill teams, giant puppets, stilt walkers, clowns, and creative floats. There’ll be flags, hats, noisemakers, and so many Uncle Sams.
And then, the much-awaited Thunder on the Bay Fireworks. At 10:20pm, the Everett skies will light up above Port Gardner Bay and 3 viewing areas are provided – Legion Memorial Park (Festival Lawn at Alverson Blvd), Grand Avenue Park and Everett Marina District. There’ll be live music, food vendors, events for kids, beer gardens and more. The event will be simulcast over radio, so there’s no missing a heart beat.
