We go to the Bellevue fireworks show just about every year, because it's a good show, a nice park, and traffic is bearable. Just about everything you'd want in a 4th of July fireworks show.
We got there about 7:30, apparently right after a heavy rain shower had passed. Uh-oh! No rain for weeks, and here it is raining on the 4th! It rained again as we walked in from our parking spot at the lot near California Pizza Kitchen, so we took shelter under some trees for a few minutes. It stopped soon enough, so we ventured out and found a great spot to settle in. We brought books and iPods to keep us busy, and we chatted and people-watched for a while, read, etc. A pleasant way to spend a summer evening.
The show start a little after 10. They launch from the top of the Bellevue Square west parking garage, and we had a good view. It was a great show, IIRC better and longer than last year, maybe 20 minutes or a little longer. And we were back home just a little after 11.
