MUST SEE
South Lake Union Fireworks Show
7/4 (Sunday) - Okay, this might be the only in-city fireworks show left in Seattle (thanks, Tom Douglas and Dave Ross!) but it's still a can't-miss way to celebrate the Fourth. We recommend walking or biking to the Eastlake side of the paved Cheshiahud Lake Union Loop trail, and securing a good spot waterside. Note: Lake Union Park will be closed to the public, so plan to watch the ‘works elsewhere. Free.
