Diamond Knot Approved Ways to Celebrate Independence Day


This Wednesday, we’ll be celebrating one of our absolute favorite holidays, Independence Day! As you’re thinking about how you’ll be celebrating the red, white and blue this year, feel free to crib from our Diamond Knot approved ideas. 

SCCA Seafair Summer 4th

Scoop up the blanket, some snacks and pile up the friends and family to head to the SCCA Seafair Summer 4th celebration at Gas Works Park. We’ve heard that the finale promises fireworks over 1,000 feet high. With plenty of entertainment, live music and food all day, you can make a day of it or head over just in advance of the show. It’s been voted one of the best shows in the country for a reason, people, its spectacular! Best of all? It’s absolutely free to get in. 

Keep It Local

We get it, the thought of shouldering your way through tons of people doesn’t always sound like a great time. For those looking to do something slightly more low key than the crazy well-attended SCCA Seafair celebration, there are tons of Fourth of July shows in areas surrounding Seattle, like Tacoma, Sammamish and Bainbridge. 

Fourth of July BBQ

Why go anywhere when you can celebrate America’s birthday from the comfort of your own home? Fire up the grill and pick up some fireworks for a DIY celebration, home edition. Just in case you’ve forgotten, we offer kegs to go. We include all of the accessories you’ll need (including ice) so that you don’t have to worry about a thing! Invite family and friends over for what’s sure to be a fun time. 

Best of all? All of these options are family friendly! Wherever your Fourth of July celebrations take you, we know you’ll have a great time celebrating America’s birthday.
