2018 July Fourth Festivities

4 Dates for a Fourth of July to Remember

By Terrence Hill, Muckleshoot Casino

Auburn, Washington’s fireworks season is once again right around the corner!

Here are four important dates for you to mark on your calendar for all your Fourth of July fun:

May 25: Fireworks Sales Begin

Tribal fireworks sales begin next to Muckleshoot Casino on Friday, May 25. If you’re looking to be the star of your own fireworks show (and you can do it within the confines of your local laws), this is where you go. From artillery and fountains to sparklers, you’ll find what you need at the Muckleshoot Tribal Fireworks Stands located just off the west side of the casino.

If you are purchasing your own fireworks, be sure to follow fireworks safety guidelines as well as (again) local laws. Click here for King County fireworks regulations, here for Pierce County, and here for the City of Auburn. Laws for other counties and cities can be found via a quick Google search.


On Saturday, June 30, Muckleshoot Casino is the place to be (just like always!) for fireworks action.

A little worried about lighting off fireworks yourself or just need even more fireworks in your life? Come down and watch the Muckleshoot Casino-sponsored fireworks show starting at 10:15 p.m. (give or take a few minutes) on June 30.

Plan it right and start your night with the comedic stylings of Paul Rodriguez at Club Galaxy starting at 8 p.m. Free tickets will be distributed beginning June 12. For more details, visit muckleshootcasino.com.

July 3 - Emerald Downs Fireworks Spectacular

Another annual fireworks tradition will also return when Emerald Downs hosts its Fireworks Spectacular on Tuesday, July 3.

Get to the track early for family friendly excitement with live horse races starting at 5 p.m. Fireworks will follow at approximately 10 p.m.
