If you’re looking for ideas on what type of festivities are going on for the 4th of July, I thought I’d share some of the best resources that I have found listing the numerous events happening around the Northwest. There are just way too many events for me to list, but these various resources provide you with all the information & links to the websites to get more details.

We typically spend the 4th of July on Lake Tapps with family, but this year we’ll be doing something different as my mother-in-law will be visiting. We thought it would be fun to take her to one of the local events around the area. So, what are your favorite 4th of July celebrations around the area?  And where do consider that they have the best fireworks display?

  1. This is a great list! Thanks!!! Question… what normally goes on at Lake Tapps for the 4th? We, too, are looking for something different! :)

  2. Christina – Lake Tapps puts on a great fireworks display which you could watch from several of the parks there (Allen Yorke park & a few other county parks). We have family that lives on the lake, so it’s always been a family get-together. But, we’re excited to try something new this year! :)

  3. Our neighbors do so many I always feel like I’m at a show just sitting in the front yard! Puyallup has a great free one at the fairgrounds, and I’ve heard the JBLM show is great.
