4th of July fireworks by boat

Published by under Shilshole Neighbors

The 4th is only a couple weeks away and falls on a Sunday.  This means people will have a long weekend to get away from the dock and cruise locally. Some popular displays to see by boat are:

Poulsbo   (on July 3rd) currently still cancelled but keep checking their site, as more and more venues are opening up.  The homes around Liberty Bay and maybe the Casino will have their shows


Quartermaster Harbor-Vashon Island (private sponsored show over inner harbor – here is a 2016 video), there is no confirmation that this show is still on

Lake Union-Seattle

Tacoma Waterfront

Everett Waterfront

Des Moines waterfront…still cancelled

Friday Harbor and Roche Harbor  …this site states that they will have fireworks
