Join the Issaquah community today in celebrating America’s independence and Issaquah’s history.

Bouncy houses, live entertainment, face painting, slug races and hay hunts are just a few of the activities planned for the Fourth of July festivities from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Kids and pets can also dress up and decorate their bikes for the annual Kids, Pets ‘N’ Pride Parade, which will begin at 10 a.m. at Rainier Boulevard North and Northwest Dogwood Street, and end at Veterans Memorial Field.

The Issaquah History Museums will set up stations for old-time laundry, dress-up, butter churning and logging, so kids and adults alike can experience Issaquah’s history firsthand.

The event is free and family-friendly.

How about some hot cars? Issaquah Christian Church’s ‘Show and Shine’ classic car show, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., will feature music by disc jockey Chuck Lang and free hot dogs. The church is at 10328 Issaquah-Hobart Road.

And if you’re not too tired after all the fun you’ve had, the 15th annual Lake Sammamish fireworks show will be at 10 p.m.

The best places to watch the fireworks by boat are just north of the sunken forest area of South Lake Sammamish. At 9 p.m., Vasa Park and Lake Sammamish State Park will be open to the public to view the fireworks from the shore.
