City Blast: Fireworks to light the sky on July 4th

We're all suckers for a great fireworks show, aren't we?

Well, this year, you don't just get fireworks, but you get a variety of family-friendly fun activities, thanks to Foursquare Church's City Blast.

They are sponsoring a 5K run, as well as a 10K run. The 5K is 3.1 miles of enjoyable terrain crisscrossing through the streets of downtown Puyallup, and ending at the Puyallup Fair & Events Center.

The 10K starts at 7:00 a.m. on July 4th, and the 5K at 7:30 a.m. Both are either run or walk (or a little of both if you are like lots of us!).

This is an all-day event. 3-on-3 basketball starts at 8 a.m., and the awards ceremony for the 5K and 10K is at 9 a.m. There's a church service at the Fair grandstand at 11 a.m.

Then, at noon festivities feature a Fun Zone for kids with bounce houses, face painting and balloon animals. The stage show includes live music, entertainment, The Massive Monkees (featured on MTV's Americas Best Dance Crew), and a celebration of our nation’s Armed Forces.

Come back at 8 pm, as the family fun zone will be open again, and there is a show on the grandstand stage, followed by fireworks, which are accompanied by music.

Contact The website is great, with all the info you'll probably need.

Have a great Fourth of July!


  1. I am looking at the fair website. Every other fair in Washington State will charge me 200 - 300 dollars to have my little booth, selling my home made lotions and skin care products.

    But you guys are charging THOUSANDS of dollars for these booths. What gives?

    1. The more kids will be sent into the balloon flight, and the more tubes will use to achieve that, the more points will receive. Be careful, as the time is limited and i have to hurry. Each level will be more and more difficult, and there will be more and more kids who want to take balloon flight, so do your best!Balloon SuppliersThank you.Printed Balloons
