Come Cheer them On: Snoqualmie hosts 4th of July Car Parade to honor Front Line Workers

The 4th of July looks a little different in Snoqualmie this year due to coronavirus restrictions. The community fireworks display has been postponed and ROA’s big event at the park has been cancelled.

So the city is hosting a different type of 4th of July parade this weekend. The community is invited to come out – socially distanced and with masks, of course – and start the holiday off with a car parade honoring front line workers of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The parade will begin at 10AM at the corner of Meadowbrook Way and Railroad Ave, travel through downtown Snoqualmie and up Snoqualmie Parkway, and make its way through several Snoqualmie Ridge neighborhoods.

Organizers say residents can watch from front yards or local parks in order to help maintain social distancing. 

Essential workers honored in car parade include Snoqualmie Valley School District bus drivers and staff of the district’s Grab and Go Meal Program; front line Safeway employees; Encompass staff who support caregivers and kids; Snoqualmie police officers, firefighters and EMT’s – just to name a few.

“These workers are vital to our entire city, and a Fourth of July parade gives everyone a chance to honor their service,” said Snoqualmie Mayor Matt Larson.
