    Celebrate our nation’s independence with Seafair! We host a day full of fun at Gas Works Park and Lake Union Park, which boast the best views of our fireworks show over Lake Union. Both locations include FREE general admission to the public as well as reserved seating available for purchase, guaranteeing fantastic views of the fireworks.

    Throughout both parks, guests can dine with our food vendors, peruse exhibit booths and listen to live entertainment from the Gas Works Park main stage. For those 21 and over, you can quench your thirst in our beer and beverage gardens while relaxing in the summer sun. Everyone is invited to participate in our All-American Games in Gas Works Park, featuring pie-eating contests, sack races and more!

    Voted as one of the nation’s best fireworks shows by USA Today and Business Insider, the fireworks start at 10:20 p.m. and last approximately 20 minutes. The show features nearly 8,500 pounds of fireworks with fantastic displays fully choreographed to the Seafair Summer 4th musical score.
