But I do think that this kind of exemption may fuel the flagrant disregard for the law when the 4th comes around, and it does seem like the more internationally flavored neighborhoods have more disregard. White Center and Delridge come to mind.

The much-bigger celebrations in the International District have used them too.

Kind of says a lot that the Mayor attends this event and they were still lit. Time to either enforce the laws on the books for everyone, or get rid of the laws.
