Kenmore 4th of July
By Diane Hettrick

There's an advantage to having water on each side. You have the option of viewing fireworks shows from neighboring cities and towns.

We have two big nearby shows - or you can just find a nice vantage point to watch the shows over the water.

On Lake Washington, the City of Kenmore puts on a big party at Log Boom Park.

Fourth of July Fireworks Show - Kenmore

Watch the night sky light up and have a fun-filled Fourth of July! The Kenmore Fireworks Show presented by Frank Lumber blasts off at 10:00pm from the Log Boom Park pier 17415 61st Ave NE.

Prior to the fireworks show, join in the festivities with fun activities and food vendors from 7:30pm to 10:00pm. The event is free and all you need to bring is a blanket or chair!

This event draws a crowd and parking is limited. Make plans to bus, ride, or walk to Log Boom Park via the Burke-Gilman trail. As a reminder, personal fireworks are prohibited in Kenmore city limits.
