The Fourth of July is a great day to relax and spend time with family and be thankful for our country’s independence.
In Spokane there are several public displays people can safely watch which are very impressive. Some of our favorites include the display at the Deer Park High School, Lakeside Middle School, Pavilion Park in Liberty Lake and of course the fireworks at Riverfront Park in Spokane.
From June 28 – July 5th, people can also purchase some fireworks. For a complete list of regulations please see Fireworks regulation in Washington State.
Fireworks, Accidents and Injuries
Unfortunately, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that Emergency Departments are very busy this time of year. Annually, around 10,000 people will be injured by sparklers, rockets, firecrackers and other fireworks. Most victims in and around Spokane will be sent to Sacred Heart for treatment.
