Spark a memory July 4 in the park

by Sami Everhart, Communications Intern | Jul 01, 2019

A frenzy of people, big jets of fire, and an explosive good time, oh my! This is not your ordinary walk in the park.

In fact, light the spark for a new tradition or memory this Independence Day at Chelan County PUD’s Walla Walla Point Park.

Fourth-of-July-Fireworks-013Fireworks boom, not bark

With an estimated 15,000 people expected for this event, come early to snag the best seat possible – of course that would be in the grass closest to the beach. While you wait for the show to start, enjoy the summer sun and all the fun that our park offers.

Imagine not only watching the fireworks take flight, but boom overhead and twinkle in the sky. It’s not for the faint of heart, nor is it for your furry friend.

This Fourth of July it will be all booms with no bark. Dogs will NOT be permitted in the park after 3 p.m., and their owners will be asked to remove them by law enforcement and security.

Don’t tread on my safety

But do tread on our new sidewalk entering from Walla Walla Avenue. It’s your path to victory – a safety win, that is.

Remember, no RVs or trailers are allowed. Use only marked stalls for passenger vehicles, not the grass or boat trailer stalls.

All the hustle and bustle can be exhilarating and exciting, but remember that the park is a shared space and to be courteous. Don’t be that guy or lady that ruins the fun for everyone else.
