Okay, more like broken news as fireworks of any kind were illegal in Everett, Washington last year and the year before that and the year before that. As a matter of fact, it’s been that way for 23 years, since 1997.

That being said, nothing has really changed. Fireworks are illegal inside the Everett City limits. People will still shoot off fireworks inside the Everett city limits.

Everett Police will have extra patrols including the Police Chief and Command Staff. There will be warnings, some fireworks will be confiscated, some people will get tickets, maybe an arrest or two.

There are however a few alternatives being suggested by Everett Firefighters.

Here are some safe alternatives that will make the kids, and your pets happy!
1. Decorate your porch or yard.
2. Find fun craft and coloring activities for the kiddos.
3. Glow in the dark bubbles.
4. Dress up your pet. (Hint: We would LOVE to see photos of your pets!)

Visit the Snohomish County Fireworks Discharge July 4th, 2020 map to find the areas that are legal to discharge fireworks.

To report non-emergency fireworks-related and noise complaints, call the non-emergency number 425-407-3999.

For emergencies, call 9-1-1.

As a reminder due to budget constraints and COVID-19 Pandemic there is no 4th of July parade or City of Everett Fireworks display over Port Gardner Bay this year.
