Go “Fourth” and celebrate!
The good ol’ U.S.A. is a whopping 236 years old—and here’s how we’re celebrating the red, white and blue.
Yakima’s 4th of July Celebration begins at noon and ends at midnight at State Fair Park, located at 1301 S. Fair Ave. in Yakima. The park will be packed with food vendors, activities, games, rides, stage shows and other attractions. A fireworks show starts at 10 p.m.
