Enjoy Lacey Fireworks Spectacular with free 3D glasses, entertainment, shuttle services  


Celebrate Independence Day with Lacey Fireworks Spectacular, a day filled with fireworks, food, music, and fun.  This Independence Day Eve event takes place on Wednesday, July 3 at  Rainier Vista Community Park.

The entire event is free to attend, including the fireworks show, entertainment, and Kid Zone activities. Although attendees may bring their own food, the only purchases are for food vendors for those interested in them.  

Pets are allowed at the event, but they must be on a leash. The city also cautioned the attendees to “please be aware of how your pet may respond to large crowds and fireworks.” 

Kid Zone 

The event starts at 4 p.m. with the Kid Zone and food vendors opening. The Kid Zone features rides, face painting, and live circus shows. 

Vuelta La Luna’s Aerial and Cirque Performance inside the zone features aerialists, clowns, acrobatics, jugglers, stilt-walkers, and more. 

Catch the show at 4:30 p.m., 6 p.m., or 8 p.m. in the zone, or interact with their roaming entertainment from 4 to 9 p.m. throughout the park. 

For more kid-friendly activities, head to the picnic shelter near the tennis courts for free patriotic tattoos, character visits, and balloon animals. 

Food and Entertainment 

BrickHouse will perform hits from KC and the Sunshine band, Earth, Wind and Fire, The Bee Gees, Kool and the Gang, and more starting at 5 p.m.  

Mr. Pink will then electrify attendees with a dance party at 8 p.m. Covering the greatest dance music, Mr. Pink performs everything with a millennial mash-up remix flair.

The fireworks set with music can be augmented this year with a free pair of 3D glasses. Attendees may pick up glasses starting June 10 at Lacey Collision, Capital Collision, or their booth on the day of the event while supplies last.
