Seattle’s Fourth of July Fireworks is held in Gas Works Park by the north shore of Lake Union. Fireworks starts at 10pm, synchronized with music and broadcast live on TV.

Each year this celebration draws a huge crowd gathering around the inflatable Statue of Liberty balloon. This event is very popular; be prepared to get there early. Street parking is very limited. There will be street closure, allowing vehicle access only for residents of the neighborhood surrounding Gas Works Park.

This is my first time going to see fireworks in Seattle. I arrived there at 8pm. Already all roads south of N 40th Street were closed. I ended up parking my car along 49th Street and Meridian Avenue; from there it took me about 30min to walk to Gas Works Park (1.5 miles). The streets in the neighborhood are very narrow; with cars parked along both sides, the streets are only wide enough to fit a single vehicle to pass through.

Do you know any closer parking space? Please let me know. I think next time I’ll try the neighborhood west of Aurora Ave along Burke Gilman Trail.
