All are invited to celebrate Independence Day with food, live entertainment, fireworks and much more
Mayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce that the annual City of Everett Independence Day Celebration will be held on Friday, June 30, at 6 p.m. at Glendale Park on Elm Street. There will be many activities for everyone to partake in throughout the evening with food, live entertainment, face painting, balloon creations, inflatable attractions and prizes for all. To end the evening, our grand finale will be the spectacular fireworks show to light up the night sky with so many bright colors.
To kick off the event, the Everett City Council will once again be hosting the Doll Carriage, Bicycle and Wagon Decorating Contest. This age-old Everett tradition will allow you to use your imagination and decorate your choice of carriage, bicycle, stroller or wagon in whichever manner you choose and have your entry paraded in front of our stage at the event. It is recommended that you arrive with your entry between 5:30 p.m. and 5:55 p.m. to be sure you’re included. Please note: Contestants must be age 13 or younger to participate.
We encourage all families, friends and neighbors to come together to enjoy a fun-filled evening with us. While we’d love for you to join us for the entire event, if you’re just interested in seeing the fireworks show, it will begin at 9:30 p.m.
Independence Day is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the Declaration of Independence, which was ratified by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776. America declared its independence from Great Britain to officially become an independent nation. The City will be joining in celebrations across the nation to commemorate our country’s 247th anniversary.
