Even though the City of Mill Creek does not have a celebration planned for July 4th and prohibits fireworks, there are plenty of other local Puget Sound cities with fireworks shows to cap off your Independence Day.

In addition to firework shows there are many family activities; parades, games, music and other entertainment at these events. Check out the websites for more information.
