The Seattle Chamber of Commerce, along with Mayor McGinn and Seafair, just announced that the 4th of July Fireworks are going to take place this year on Lake Union, with Gas Works Park as the location for day long festivities including food booths, a beer garden, music, displays, and activities.
Beth Knox, President and CEO for Seafair, announced that Western Display Fireworks will launch a 20-minute, choreographed show from a barge on Lake Union.
The Seattle Chamber of Commerce announced that they have signed sponsors on to a minimum of a 3-year commitment for the show. Sponsors include longtime supporters: Microsoft, Amazon, Starbucks, and Tom Douglas Restaurants, with KIRO TV as the broadcast sponsor. Community contributions are also welcome as a 501c3 “Fireworks Fund” has been set up via the Seattle Chamber of Commerce website, which you can access here.
