The community is invited to celebrate Independence Day at the Family Fourth at Tukwila’s Fort Dent Park.

Fireworks are illegal in Tukwila, so the big display at 10 p.m. is the best (and only) place in town to see legal fireworks for the Fourth.

The park, 14800 Starfire Way, opens at 9 a.m. Activities – including games, bouncy houses and an entertainment stage – begin at 4 p.m. Admission is free.

Pack a picnic or buy food from one of the vendors.

Fireworks banned in Tukwila

The police and fire departments will conduct enhanced safety patrols to identify people using illegal fireworks in Tukwila. Tickets – up to $250 per occurrence – will be issued to those violating the fireworks ban.

To report illegal fireworks, call 911.

Since 1996, fireworks have been banned in Tukwila.

Last year, fireworks caused a fire at an apartment complex above Macadam Road.
