4th of July 2013 in Olympia WA Area - What's Happening??

By
Industry Observer

The Fourth of July 2013 celebration is right around the corner - and Olympia has some sizzling summer temperatures to go with a sizzling hot holiday.  And after your picnic or barbecue, you may wonder where you can go to see some fireworks.  SO here is the rundown of the scheduled public fireworks displays, as well as some info about what, where and when you can  make things go boom on your own:

 

 

Fourth of July fireworks

 

Lacey has their annual fireworks spectacular on 4th of July Eve - it's happening at approximately 10:15 PM Wednesday July 3rd at William A Bush Park (4400 Chardonnay Dr SE, Lacey - the park borders Yelm Hwy).  You can't sit in the park itself to watch the display, but there is lots of parking in the nearby shopping areas.

Tumwater's Annual Fourth of July celebration includes a parade at 11 AM on July 4th.  This year's parade theme is "Stars, Stripes, and Service" and the parade runs from the corner of Capitol Blvd and Lee St south to Israel Rd & west to Linderson.  The parade will get you ready for more celebrating, so you can head to Tumwater's Artesian Festival & Thunder Valley Fireworks Show next.  This event begins at 6 PM and the fireworks show will be at 10:15 PM.  It's all happening at Tumwater Valley Municipal Golf Course (4611 Tumwater Valley Dr).  There will be loads of activities to entertain all ages until it's time for the fireworks show.  Admission is free but parking is $10.

Olympia's fireworks are not on 4th of July, but rather are the grand finale to the annual Lakefair celebration later this month - so you can still look forward to one more round of oohs and aahs!

And if you like to do some fireworks on your own, know that both Olympia & Lacey prohibit the sale or discharge of fireworks within their city limits.  Thurston County does allow the "safe and sane" fireworks, and they will be on sale at many locations from noon June 28th until 9 PM July 4th.  The county does have limits on when you can enjoy those noisemakers - you can set them off between 9 AM & 11 PM both July 3rd and the 4th.

So enjoy the local fireworks - and if you are setting some off yourself, please stay safe!

Enjoy.  I didn't realize until today that the heat wave in the west was as far north as Washington State.

We're going to get some hot weather soon.  In the mean time, the humidity is an oppresive 100%.

Thanks Lenn!  And yes we've got 90 degree weather - yesterday and again today.  I know that doesn't compare with some of the heat waves happening, but we are so unaccustomed to it - and few homes have air conditioning - that there are always as many who HATE it as those who enjoy.  Thankfully I have some great shade trees at home, and air conditioned car and office!  And gotta say, I'll take the heat over your kind of high humidity any day!!!  Hopefully you'll have some relief from that soon even if it gets hotter.

For sure Gene!  And our infrequent hot weather always seems to arrive right after a day in the low 70's - head spinning to try to adjust!  I'm looking forward to a fun and relaxing 4th playing with the grandkids - hope you have a good - and safe - holiday too!
