With no Elliott Bay fireworks this year – where CAN you see some?

We reported this more than two months ago — the Ivar’s announcement that it was canceling its annual fireworks show over Elliott Bay – the one that draws thousands to West Seattle’s north- and east-facing shores. But not everybody got the word back then; we got a question today from someone who hadn’t heard, so we’re mentioning it again: NO Elliott Bay fireworks this Fourth of July. You can sort of catch part of the Lake Union fireworks from here; not quite the same. So if you’re starting to think about the Fourth of July and wondering where you CAN see fireworks – here’s the complete statewide list (including some shows NOT on the 4th).

    I am sure that you can still see fireworks going off illegally and gratis in the ‘hood. Perhaps even more without Ivar’s show. I am sure boating in Elliott Bay will be safer…

    come to S. Delridge, 21st and Roxbury, I will be sitting on the garage roof, watching all my neighbors blow up stuff.

    I hope some great company or org will see this as a wonderful opportunity and relaunch the tradition next year!

    How about the West Seattle Junction Association Fireworks Show in 2009? A show down off the ferry dock by Lincoln Park would be perfect.

    I mean 2010.
