Updated For 2021
Fourth of July will look different this year, but hopefully we can all celebrate one way or another. With many firework shows and festivals being cancelled because of the ongoing pandemic. That doesn’t mean we can’t still celebrate the day!
We’ll be doing what we normally do minus going to Steilacoom’s 4th of July parade; making delicious foods, relaxing at home and letting off a few legal fireworks. A perfect day! Just remember you don’t need a huge extravaganza, this past year has proven to be “different”, so just go with the flow and enjoy yourself. While still being safe, of course!
If you’d still like to get out and do something festive, there is stuff happening, just be sure to get your advanced tickets. If I hear of anything else I’ll be sure to update the list below.
Keep in mind there is a national fireworks shortage, organizers recommend people visit early to stock up for their Fourth of July celebrations.
