Celebrate July 4 on Vashon

Vashon’s annual fireworks display will be this Wednesday evening after dark over Quartermaster Harbor. Typically, that means the fireworks begin after 10 p.m.

Most any stretch of beach along the harbor will provide a good vantage point, and heading out early is a good idea.

In unincorporated King County, including Vashon, consumer fireworks are allowed only between 9 a.m. and midnight.

The King County Sheriff’s Office will be conducting emphasis patrols on illegal fireworks use and will have an extra presence on the island to respond to fireworks-related calls on July 4, according to a King County Sheriff’s Office spokesman.

Those lighting their own fireworks should also remember that they are not allowed in any King County park or Vashon Park District property, including Dockton Park and Jensen Point.

People with animals who may get nervous with the noise of fireworks are encouraged to keep them indoors. Should any pets go missing, owners can call Vashon Island Pet Protector for Assistance at (206) 389-1085 or dogs@vipp.com.
