July 4th Everett's Colors of Freedom
Our 4th of July celebration trumps anything your neighbor's got planned this year!
Start the day off with running with the Yankee Doodle Dash. You can opt into the 1k, 5k or 10k races, or you can watch the kid's race on the road outside the YMCA on Rockefeller Ave. After your run, keep your energy up with Fire and Ice at the Comcast Arena on Hewitt Ave. $4 will get you on the ice with rental skates, and the Power Play Cafe in the lobby will help keep you energized as you glide on the ice. The ice rink will remain open until 4:45pm.
Warm yourself back up by walking along Pacific Ave and Wetmore Ave as you check out the Fun in the Sun Street Fair. The kids can spend the afternoon on free inflatables and pony rides, while you enjoy the live music and an impressive antique car show. Free cotton candy, snow cones and more from 12pm - 3pm. From there, you can head to the Imagine Children's Museum on Wall Street or to the Everett Police station's open house on Wetmore.
The Colors of Freedom Parade starts at 11:00am and will be going on for most of the day, so be sure not to miss it! You can read more about the parade HERE.
Take a break from all the walking by catching the Everett Aquasox baseball game at Memorial Stadium on Broadway Ave at 7pm. After the Aquasox win, head down to either Legion Park on Alverson Blvd or Grand Avenue Park on Grand Ave to watch the fireworks on the water. You can tune in to 1520 AM to listen to a music simulcast that will accompany the fireworks starting at 10:20pm. Relax on the grass and soak in the glorious view. Next year, invite your neighbor.
