Free shuttle bus service to and from the 4th of July celebration at State Fair Park this Thursday will be provided once again by Yakima Transit this year.
Shuttle buses will operate continuously every 15 to 20 minutes from 3:30 pm to 9:30 pm and from 10:30 pm to 11:30 pm from three Park and Ride lots.
The Park and Ride lot locations will be at the Gateway Center (on Fair Avenue in front of Office Max and Target), Eisenhower High School (at the bus turnout on Tieton Drive near 40th Avenue), and Wide Hollow Elementary School (72nd Avenue and Nob Hill Boulevard).
After the fireworks show, which will begin at 10:00 pm, additional shuttle buses will be on duty to return riders to the Park and Ride lots. The last shuttle buses of the evening will leave State Fair Park at 11:30 pm.
“Yakima Transit is proud to continue the tradition of providing free shuttle bus service to the 4th of July community celebration,” said Yakima Transit Manager Alvie Maxey. “It’s a safe and convenient way for people to get to and from State Fair Park while also avoiding traffic congestion.”
The 4th of July celebration will begin at noon at State Fair Park and will include the Apple Jam Battle of the Bands contests, a water slide, a variety of food vendors, a vintage car show, children’s activities, carnival rides, entertainment throughout the day and, of course, the big fireworks show at 10:00 pm.
