MOUNTLAKE TERRACE — The city is hosting a Family Fourth of July event featuring a professional fireworks show, thanks to the financial support of the community.
The event is planned for the holiday at Evergreen Playfield, with musical entertainment beginning at 8 p.m. followed by the fireworks show shortly after 10 p.m. People can arrive as early as 6:30 p.m. to get a good viewing spot. They can bring a picnic dinner while they wait for the entertainment to begin.
