Seattle, WA (PRWEB) June 21, 2010
The city of Seattle almost went without a fireworks show this year when it was announced that, because of budget constraints, the fireworks show at Lake Union would be put on a one-year hiatus. Within 24 hours of the announcement, however, many small businesses, companies and individuals managed to raise enough donations to save the Seattle 4th of July celebration. The Seattle Waterfront Marriott invites people from across the country to watch one of the nation’s largest fireworks displays during their visit to the popular downtown Seattle hotel.

On April 2, 2010, the people of Seattle rallied around the annual fireworks show, donating thousands of dollars to ensure the continuation of the long-standing tradition. The fireworks show has been hailed by Forbes, Travel Magazine, and Times Magazine as one of top 10 fireworks displays in the nation. This Seattle waterfront fireworks show begins with a performance of the National Anthem by a Northwest-based band, followed by a Chinook helicopter flyover from the 159th Aviation Regiment (pending regiment deployment). A fireworks show created by Eric Tucker from Pyro Spectacular will kickoff at 10 p.m. Popular, traditional music accompanies the fireworks display, which will be broadcasted to thousands over radio and television.
Before the show, guests are invited to enjoy the Gas Works Park, featuring a children’s area, a beer garden and plenty of barbeque grills for cooking. This year’s pre-fireworks celebration also includes a climbing wall, a kite-making and flying area, a giant inflatable slide and much more.
