Family Friendly 4th of July Events and Fireworks Displays Tacoma Auburn Puyallup Renton Kent Steilacoom and Beyond-Updated for 2020 (most all cancelled).
If you’re looking for places to watch fireworks this 4th of July, the news isn’t great.
Here’s our 2020 round for the 4th of July. Due to the Governor’s restrictions on crowd size, essentially every organized event has been cancelled. Note: There were a few that I just couldn’t even find on the city’s website, so if you find out any scoop on those, let me know.
The one exception is Puyallup, where you can still buy tickets to a drive up style show you can watch from your car at the fairgrounds.
We have provided links so you can double check details.
Over here at the SFM house, we’ll be having hamburgers and hot dogs, and then seeing whatever the neighbors get up to! If you have questions about the legality of fireworks in your neighborhood, the easiest thing to do is to figure out if you’re in the limits of a city or in a non-city part of the county, and then check with that municipality. Stay safe and have fun!
Red, White, and Blues Festival, Federal Way
I can’t even find mention of this one, but safe to assume it’s cancelled. If you know different, let me know!
Changed to a, “Parade in Place.” Folks are encouraged to decorate and then take a drive around to see their neighbors festive creativity. Props to Enumclaw for the effort, right?
Red, White, and Kaboom! Drive-in Fireworks show.
Yes! There is a fireworks event in Puyallup this year! It’s a drive-in style option at the fairgrounds, and it requires tickets, though I’m sure you’ll be able to see them going up in the sky from around town.
The car and airplane show component of the Freedom Fair has been rescheduled to September pending Pierce County being in Phase Four.
Bottom line if this is confusing: No big 4th event on Ruston Way this year.
Postponed. No new date yet; I’m sure it depends on whether/when we move to another phase.
DuPont July 4th: A Hometown Celebration
I can’t find this one this year. I think we can assume it’s cancelled, but if you know different, let me know.
Eatonville Fireworks + Parade
The chamber site for Eatonville hasn’t been updated in a very long time, but I think we can assume this is all cancelled. If anyone hears different, on any of this, let me know!
According to The Olympian, this is all cancelled.
No organized displays that I know about, but (pro tip from someone who grew up there…..) you can usually see a ton of stuff blowing up over most bodies of water.
4th of July Sinclair Inlet Fireworks Show, Port Orchard/Bremerton
