A new Independence Day event in Mountlake Terrace is one step closer to becoming a reality as the City of Mountlake Terrace has contracted with Western Display Fireworks of Canby, Oregon, to be the pyrotechnics vendor for a possible 2013 celebration.
The city hopes to host an Independence Day event at Evergreen Playfield, 5400 block of 224nd St. S.W., on Thursday, July 4. While a fireworksï¿½ company has been secured for the show, funding for the event still has to be raised. City officials hope to raise $10,000 by May from corporate, small business and individual sponsorships and donations to stage the celebration.
Information and commitment forms for those interested in sponsoring various aspects of the Independence Day event will be available from the city starting on Monday, April 1.
