EVERETT — Fireworks shows and concerts are back to let this Fourth of July ring.
The City of Everett is putting on a 22-minute fireworks show with several viewing locations.
• Legion Memorial Park— Everett’s primary location for the show, Legion Memorial Park has no parking during the event. Free parking and shuttle service from Everett Community College’s Walt Price Fitness Center on Tower Street is available.
• Grand Avenue Park — Overlooking the waterfront, Grand Avenue Park offers easy access to the Port of Everett via the pedestrian bridge and is a popular firework viewing location.
• Port of Everett— The Port of Everett is the closest location you can get to the fireworks show. There is a $5 special event parking fee. Free parking is available near Grand Avenue Park by the pedestrian bridge.
• Harborview Park— Despite its distance from the fireworks, Harborview Park offers an excellent view of the show. The location makes it less congested than the other parks. However, there is limited parking and no restrooms.
