Go here for the 2017 edition of this list. I promise it’s worth the click. Thanks!
Here’s my list of South Sound 4th of July events, fireworks displays, and other family 4th fun. Looking for fireworks in Federal Way, the parade in Enumclaw, or Independence day fun in Puyallup? I’ve got you covered. I also have the links for 2014 4th of July fun in Steilacoom, Lacey, and Kent, plus what to do for Independence Day in Tumwater, Renton, Auburn, and Kent. And, of course, fun ideas for Tacoma and where to see fireworks in Kitsap.
If you’re new here, Welcome! My name is Maegen, and I write just about family events and activities in the South Sound. I have new ideas every day, so come back again and celebrate your South Sound family all year ’round. I’ve included tips from our Facebook community in this round-up, but I’d love for you to leave one, too!
