Pullman to celebrate Fourth Of July with fireworks

Live music, food, games and fireworks celebrations at Sunnyside Park
Fireworks fill the sky during the 2015 Fourth of July celebration in Sunnyside Park. For the last 43 years, several local groups have worked together to put on the event.

Pullman’s Fourth of July celebrations will begin at 5 p.m. at Sunnyside Park. It is a non-ticket event and the Pullman Transit has special routes beginning at 4:30 p.m. July 4. 

Live music will be provided by the Community Band of the Palouse, Dan Maher and DJ Goldfinger, according to the Pullman Chamber of Commerce

Sunnyside park has a play area for children and is a wide space for picnicking; however, dogs, alcohol and smoking are strictly prohibited, said Marie Dymkoski, Pullman Chamber of Commerce executive director. 

Children and families are encouraged to bring their own games, while hula hoops and beach balls will be provided for the dance floor, Dymkoski said. 

The Lumberyard will be present to provide hamburgers, chicken wraps and hot dogs. Cotton candy and Coca-Cola will also be provided for a fee, according to the Pullman Chamber of Commerce.

Vegan options like mac and cheese and salads will be additionally provided, Dymkoski said. Part of the proceeds from the Lumberyard would go towards the funding of the fireworks.

Hit Radio 104.7 and new Country 104.3 will have the Fourth of July program broadcast from Pullman Radio Stations, according to the Pullman Chamber of Commerce. 

Dymkoski said volunteers are still required for cotton candy and monitoring parking lots. Community members who are interested in assisting can call the Pullman Chamber of Commerce at (509) 334-3565.

    I’m a long time Pullman resident and was truly disappointed with this years entertainment. The Person hosting the event seemed to play music that was extremely out dated.the final song before the fireworks was a depressing song that I felt was inappropriate for the event. I for one think that the city council should look into this so as not to repeat bringing confusion to a event to inspire happiness to the community.
