Get ready- one of my favorite days in downtown Kirkland is just around the corner! The Fourth of July falls on a Monday this year. Remember the boat launch will be CLOSED from 9:30am-2pm and 9:30pm- midnight.
Here's the itinerary for celebrating our independence:
7am- If you were on a downtown Kirkland bender the night before, make sure you go pick up your car early-parade and staging routes will be cleared and vehicles towed.
9:30am- Parade route closed to all vehicles- detours in place
10am-The Kirkland Arts Center and Celebrate Kirkland host "Decorate to Celebrate," a kid's event at the Marina Park Pavilion
11:30am- The Children's Walking Parade begins at Market/Central
12pm-The Grand Parade begins at Market and Central
After the parade, join friends and neighbors at Marina Park. There will be food vendors there or pack your own picnic (hopefully no umbrellas required!)
3pm- Rotary Duck Dash at Marina Park
10:15- Fireworks Show - Lake WA, right off the shores of Marina Park
