Every 4th of July, it seems that everyone and their little brother-in-law treks on over to the cozy little ‘hood of Three Tree Point.
And every 4th, the neighbors of said ‘hood pitch in to fund a spectacular high-altitude fireworks show (these are major, professionally-launched fireworks folks, rocketed up from a barge anchored off the point starting ’round 10pm), visible from all around Puget Sound. The roads get clogged, parking spots are rare, and it’s like one huge rockin’ block party.
In the past, only the neighbors in the area have been able to donate to the Fireworks Fund, but the Normandy Park Blog is here to change that.
Here’s what your generous donation will help provide:
- An outstanding, breath-taking display put on by the pros at Western Fireworks
- Tug, barge and fuel fees
- Insurance and permits
- Police support
- Dumpster rental for July 5th cleanup
The usual cost for all these things has gone up since last year to a projected goal of $21,000, which is why this here Blog is kindly asking for everyone in the general area who enjoys this show to please donate something to the Fireworks Fund.
Just click on a dollar amount (ranging from $25 to $500), then enter your vitals via a secure website and voila – you won’t feel guilty anymore about “stealing” a great local entertainment tradition!
Please note that if you donate $150 or more, you’ll get an invitation to a special dinner party on Saturday June 28th. These parties are wonderful, with catered food, open bar, live music and great neighbors.
If you’d rather donate by check, send whatever you can afford to:
Three Tree Point Fireworks Fund (or “3TPFF”)

Now…don’t you feel better by giving something?
Have fun, and as always, stay safe and sane.
