Launch into summer with the City of Mountlake Terrace and our amazing community at the 3rd of July Family Celebration with fireworks, food trucks and fun.
The party starts at 6 p.m. at Ballinger Park with a DJ, pie-eating contests and outdoor games. This year’s food truck lineup includes Pie Bar, Yummy Box, Ryan's REZ-ipes, Yay Big Yay High Yay Ice Cream, The Vet Chef and Billy Cheesesteak. The professional fireworks show will start around 10 p.m.
The boat launch and fishing pier will be closed, along with the creek restoration area in the center of the park. Interurban Trail access will not be available from the west side.
Park restrooms will be closed, but there will be portable restrooms provided. Strong attendance is expected so please plan ahead. We recommend blankets, chairs, flashlights and weather gear. (See parking information below.)
The city is grateful for additional support provided for this event by Calvary Fellowship and Rainier Roofing Company.
On a related note, remember that personal fireworks are illegal in city limits and throughout much of the region. To report violations, call 425-407-3999. If there is an immediate threat to life or property, call 911.
