It’s an election year so you kind of knew this was coming… but, hurray!
Mayor McGinn updates the public on Fourth of July fireworks in Seattle
“A fireworks show on the Fourth of July is a civic tradition. I, like many Seattle residents, was disappointed to learn last week that there would not be fireworks this year at Gas Works Park. That’s why I am delighted to announce that we are working with Seafair and the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce to craft a new and sustainable plan for Fourth of July fireworks in Seattle. I am optimistic that we will indeed have fireworks this year in our city. I thank Seafair and the Seattle Metro Chamber of Commerce for their commitment to Seattle and for their leadership. We will announce more details soon.”
Meanwhile, it’s official — D.C. budget cuts have grounded the Blue Angels this summer meaning no Seafair appearance. No worries. Word is organizers have found a private jet performance group to buzz the city.
