The Port is partnering with the Bellingham Regional Chamber of Commerce and Haggen Food & Pharmacy to provide the community with its annual July 4th fireworks display.
The festival this year begins at 2 pm on July 4th at Zuanich Point Park and includes food vendors and craft booths, live bands, and games for kids. The fireworks show will begin at approximately 10:30 pm
Shuttle service will be available to view fireworks from Zuanich Point Park at Squalicum Harbor. With limited parking available at Squalicum Harbor, celebrants are encouraged to walk, bike or use free passenger shuttles. The free passenger shuttles will run from 1 pm through 11 pm and pick up passengers at Bellingham High School, 2020 Cornwall Ave. The drop-off point will be the CityMac parking lot inside Squalicum Harbor. Event-goers will then use the promenade pedestrian path to reach the event site. For more information, visit www.haggen.com.
Granary Avenue and the Port’s parking lot on Granary Avenue will be closed to vehicles from 6 pm on July 4 until 6 am on July 5. However, Granary Ave and Waypoint Park will be open to pedestrians. Community members wishing to view fireworks from Granary Avenue or Waypoint Park will need to walk or bike.
Community members are encouraged to take advantage of this event or other opportunities to celebrate our nation's independence and enjoy large, legal fireworks displays.
