Happy 4th of July Everyone! Here is the roundup for all the local 2015 celebratory events!
" City fire officials warn that setting off fireworks yourself this year is not only illegal, but places you and your neighborhood in danger. Each July 4th, thousands of people are injured while using fireworks. In 2013, there were 239 reported injuries in Washington. This year we are experiencing drought conditions throughout the state, creating an even greater risk for fires resulting from fireworks. During 2013, there were 102 reported fires caused by fireworks. For the Fourth, catch the fireworks at your local city's planned event instead and keep it safe for everyone. Report illegal fireworks displays immediately by calling 911. "
Don't forget to bring a little bag to any of the parades as they seem to throw a lot of candy around here!
