2nd annual Red, White and Boom Fireworks Show set to delight the Snoqualmie Valley this 4th of July

As the City of Snoqualmie approaches its second 4th of July with an aerial fireworks ban in place, organizers are gearing up for the 2nd Annual Red, White and Boom public fireworks show at Snoqualmie Community Park, 35016 SE Ridge Street.

The inaugural event was a big hit last year, drawing hundreds to the park to enjoy the professional display that lasted approximately 30 minutes.

Serve Snoqualmie, the community service branch of Church on the Ridge, is once again organizing the event, working closely with the city. The title sponsor this year is Safeway, which will be opening a new Snoqualmie location this August. Lots of other local businesses also contributed to help make the 2nd show just as successful as the first.

Serve Snoqualmie’s goal is “to provide a positive experience for the residents of Snoqualmie and anyone visiting our city over the patriotic holiday.”

The 2nd annual Red, White and Boom fireworks show is scheduled to start around 9:45PM. Community members are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs. Seating opens at 7pm on both upper and lower park fields. There will be bounce houses, music, food and beverages available, too.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: in 2016 a new law went into effect within Snoqualmie city limits making only ground fireworks, smoke devices, and hand-held sparking devices legal. Aerial devices, fireworks and explosives are not legal, as well as many types sold on tribal reservation lands.

Some fireworks sold at state-approved stands, as well as those on tribal reservations, can become illegal when possessed or discharged in Snoqualmie city limits.
