Seattle 4th July Fireworks 2014

Live Stream Lake Union, Start Time, Events, Viewing Points

Lake Union, Seattle, WA, 4 July

 

Seattle 4th July fireworks

The Washington state city of Seattle is another that has an excellent natural advantage when it comes to holding a 4th July fireworks display, with the situation of the main part of the city on the spectacular Lake Union, which provides an ideal natural focal point for a display that can be viewed form a wide range of regions around the city, although most head for the day-long party in the iconic Gas Works Park that precedes the main event.

You might expect the Seattle Space Needle to be the central feature in any display in this city, and indeed on New Year's Eve that is the case, but for Independence day and the huge crowds it attracts it is felt that the wider shoreline spaces of the Lake provide a more suitable venue.

Fireworks Schedule & Viewing Points

 

There was actually some serious doubts over whether there would be any 4th July fireworks at all in Seattle for 2013, and as recently as April is was thought that the event would be cancelled due to lack of funding.

However, a number of big-name sponsors, including Microsoft, Starbucks and Amazon.com  got involved at the 11th hour and put together the required funding to mean the vent can go ahead.

It has been announced that the event will be different from previous years, but the central aspect of the party in Gas Works park followed by 20 minutes of fireworks launched from a barge in Lake Union will remain the same.

The best vantage points are in Gas Works Park itself and the fireworks show is scheduled to start at 10.15pm

One of the best ways to view the fireworks is to take a cruise on Lake Union, and make an evening of it with dinner and champagne, as well as live music before the pyrotechnics:

There are also a large number of live webcams positioned around Seattle, and looking at the Space Needle in particular, from where you should be able to catch some decent views of the fireworks:
