Free shuttle bus service to and from the 4th of July celebration at State Fair Park this Monday will be provided once again by Yakima Transit.
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:
- Gateway Center (on Fair Avenue in front of the former Office Max location and Target)
- Eisenhower High School (at the bus turnout on Tieton Drive near 40th Avenue)
- Wide Hollow Elementary School (72nd Avenue and Nob Hill Boulevard)
After the fireworks show, which begins 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.”
Prior to the fireworks, sponsored by the City of Yakima and Yakima County, the 4th of July celebration at State Fair Park will include a Kids Zone, food vendors and the Yakima Apple Jam Battle of the Bands.
