Every year we are reminded that there is a fireworks ban for residents of Olympia, Tumwater and Lacey. Residents setting off fireworks in your neighborhood is rarely a treat, and often a stress for pets (how many missing or runaway dogs do you see on the 4th?). However do not fear, the professionals have you covered!
Lacey starts of the independence day festivities with the Lacey Fireworks Spectacular, on July 3rd.
It is nice to have an event on the actual holiday too! The City of Tumwater has you covered with the Artesian Family Festival and Thunder Valley Fireworks Show. Held on the Tumwater Valley Driving Range it is easily accessible to locals. One good time-saving trick is to walk to the event.
Olympia does not have fireworks over the 4th of July holiday as it focuses on Lakefair. Typically the third weekend of July. They end the celebration with a fireworks display on the Sunday night.
Boston Harbor Fireworks
Just a 10 minute trip up the peninsula from Olympia and you are in the sleepy seaside village of Boston Harbor. The marina is the center of it all and fittingly put on a fireworks display on the 3rd of July each year.
