Always a nice moment with the salute to fallen service members from our area.

Hard to believe but Independence Day is next week. The City of Everett has put out the lineup of city-sponsored events for the 4th of July. Here’s their list.

Community members and visitors throughout the region are invited to celebrate Independence Day with the City of Everett on July 4 at the Colors of Freedom parade and festival, powered by Peoples Bank. The parade takes place on Wetmore and Colby avenues, between Wall and 26th streets, beginning at 10:45 a.m., and the festival takes place at Legion Memorial Park from 1-11 p.m.

“The Colors of Freedom parade and festival is our biggest event of the year,” said Carol Thomas, Everett’s cultural arts manager. “Community members of all ages will have a blast with all the activities throughout the day and get to enjoy an incredible and safe fireworks display that evening.”

The Fourth of July festivities begin along Wetmore and Colby avenues with an exciting parade full of marching bands, drill teams, stilt-walkers, community organizations and more. The Seattle Cossacks Stunt motorcycle team will provide thrilling pre-parade entertainment at 10:45 a.m.

After the parade, community members can stop by the Public Safety Open House from noon-4 p.m. at the Everett Police North Precinct, 3002 Wetmore Ave. Families will have fun getting to know the Everett Police and Fire departments, checking out their specialty units, and engaging in fun activities.

At the festival, community members will enjoy an afternoon jammed packed with entertainment, music, food and activities for people of all ages. When the sun sets, the excitement really begins as the Thunder on the Bay fireworks show lights up the sky at 10 p.m. over Port Gardner Bay.

There will be no parking available at Legion Memorial Park and limited parking in downtown Everett on July 4. Everett Transit will provide free shuttles throughout the day to the parade, festival and fireworks. Visit our website for more information about parking and the shuttle service.

The Colors of Freedom Fourth of July parade and festival is made possible thanks to City staff and departments, event sponsors, more than 80 community and CERT volunteers, Everett’s July 4th Foundation, and community partnerships with Everett Public Schools and Bellevue Healthcare.
