When you get your 2019 wall calendar, put a big red star on the Fourth of July and plan to attend Marysville’s newest holiday party. The Fourth of July Festival featuring music, a professional fireworks display, vendors and family activities was approved by the Marysville City Council at its Nov. 13 meeting. 

“I’m delighted that Marysville is able to offer a high-quality, professional fireworks show this next 4th of July,” said City Council President Kamille Norton, who served on the city’s 4th of July Committee. “It will be fun to see our community come together for a family-friendly celebration of our great nation’s independence.”

The festival’s highlight will be a 25-minute choreographed professional fireworks display at Marysville Pilchuck High School. Concessions and family-friendly activities will be offered prior to the fireworks show. Look for more information in early 2019 about opportunities for civic and community groups to be involved.  

The 4th of July Committee met several times in 2018 and recommended that the city host a public event on the 4th of July including fireworks, music, vendors and activities.

Fireworks possession and use of fireworks by individuals within Marysville city limits has been illegal since January 2017.
