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!
