Lacey kicks off 50th birthday celebration.

July 1st, 2016 by Ken

This Sunday, July 3, the City of Lacey will begin a year-long celebration of its 50th year of being an incorporated city.  The first event will be an enhanced Third of July Fireworks show in partnership with the Lacey South Sound Chamber of Commerce.

The event will be held at Rainier Vista Park on Ruddell Road and will begin at 6:30 p.m. with the fireworks starting at 10 p.m.   Vendors, entertainers and activities for the children will be available.   Parking is extremely limited and attendees are encouraged to park elsewhere and take a short walk to the park.

While this is a kickoff for the city’s birthday, it is also the 50th anniversary of the first Third of July fireworks originally held at South Sound Center.  For the last few years the event has been co-sponsored by the City of Lacey and the Lacey South Sound Chamber.

This is just the first of a year long celebration which will include an enhanced Christmas Tree Lighting, Open House and Lighted Parade on December 5 – – the actual birthday of the city.  A mayor’s gala and the 2017 fireworks will fill out the birthday bash.

Many other community events are partnering with the city birthday celebration including the BBQ Festival later this month and the Pacific Northwest Mushroom Festival.

If you’re interested in tying your event to the city’s birthday contact Mary Coppin at the City of Lacey.     If you’re interested in more information on the fireworks or other city activities, go the the city’s web page.
