As part of the 2021 budget negotiations the Everett City Council restored funding for a July 4th fireworks show. Because of the pandemic and budget shortfall there was no fireworks show, parade or other City sponsored Independence Day events in 2020.

In order to secure the services of the Fireworks company the City of Everett has used for the last several years a decision had to be made to sign an agreement right away or lose the services of their long time provider.

With that in mind, on Wednesday night the Everett City Council approved spending $72,000.00 to secure the services of Western Display Fireworks, ltd of Oregon for the annual Independence Day Thunder on the Bay fireworks display.

There is a clause in the agreement that says, “If the fireworks show cannot occur on the 4th of July due to the pandemic the agreement allows for rescheduling the fireworks by June 4th to a show date no later than 1/1/2022.”

If Everett cancels the show altogether there is a minimum cancellation fee of $18,000.00.
