Downtown Waterfront Redevelopment Area to be Opened to View Fireworks

The Port is inviting the community to view Whatcom County’s largest Independence Day fireworks display from the former Georgia-Pacific site on Bellingham’s Downtown Waterfront. Parking will be available along Cornwall Avenue and spectators will need to walk approximately ¼ mile down West Laurel Street to access a paved, outdoor viewing area located along the shoreline. Community members are encouraged to bring lawn chairs as no other seating will be available.

The West Laurel Street entrance to the Downtown Waterfront will open to pedestrians at 8:00pm, and people will walk along a designated route to the viewing site, with the fireworks show starting around 10:30pm. Because of its undeveloped nature, there will be no vehicle access or parking inside the former Georgia-Pacific site.  Volunteers in reflective vests will help direct people to the viewing area.

People are welcome to bring coolers, food, non-alcoholic drinks and lawn chairs to the event. No pets, alcohol or personal fireworks are allowed.  Porta Potties, trash and recycling bins will be provided.
The Downtown Waterfront viewing spot is in addition to the popular Haggen Family 4th of July Celebration at Zuanich Point Park, hosted by the Port in partnership with Haggen and the Bellingham/Whatcom Chamber of Commerce. The event runs from 11am-10:30pm and includes live music, vendors, a beer garden, kids games, and much more.
