|A great way to enjoy fireworks is to attend a public display produced by trained professionals. In Washington State, Independence Day fireworks displays are spectacular productions illuminated with vibrant colors. Some are fired from barges on Washington's waterways. Many fireworks shows are accompanied by patriotic soundtracks which are carried live by local radio stations. Public fireworks displays that are televised include: |
Chase Family Fourth- Televised KING 5, Seattle
Freedom Fair and Fireworks Extravaganza - Televised KOMO-4, Seattle
There are over 120 professional displays on July 4th in Washington State, and many other Independence Day activities.
