Food trucks

Don’t fill up on hotdogs and potato salad before getting to the festival because you’re going to want to save room for food trucks. This year, we have over a dozen food truck options to satisfy your appetite. 

Free Putt Putt and Axe-throwing

We've teamed up with PNW Axe and PNW Putt to offer visitors some extra fun in the sun while you hang out at the park. There will be two axe-throwing booths and a full 18-hole putt putt golf course. All play is free, so everyone can enjoy.

The city's annual Thunder on the Bay fireworks show is the largest in Snohomish County. Enjoy a stunning 20-minute display over Port Gardner to cap off a memorable Independence Day. The show starts at around 10:30 and there's no better place to watch than from Legion Park.

A: Yes! The event is free to attend.

Q: Are dogs allowed? 

A: Yes; they must be on a leash per Everett Park rules. If you're taking your puppers on the shuttle, they need to wear a muzzle unless they're a service animal. For those with pooches that are afraid of fireworks, the fireworks start at 10ish.

Q: Can I bring chairs or sun shades to the park? 

A: Yes. Be courteous of those behind you so you don't block their view of the fireworks.

Q: Will there be drinking water?

A: Yes. We have a fountain for filling up water bottles.
