Neah Bay, at the end of state Highway 112, will celebrate the Fourth of July with a street fair, face-painting, children's games, a parade at noon “and fireworks like all get out” today, according to the Neah Bay Chamber of Commerce.
The fireworks show at Front Beach will start as soon as the sky is dark enough, usually just after 10 p.m., said Janine Bowechop, Makah Museum director.
Each year the fireworks show is “spectacular,” Bowechop said, adding that the lights are enhanced by the clear air and reflections on the water of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Bowechop said.
“We kind of set a standard here, and now we have to keep it up,” she said.
Clallam Bay and Sekiu, also on state Highway 112, annually reserve fireworks for Fun Days, which will be July 11-13, with the fireworks display July 12.
