Kirkland’s most beloved community celebration is seeking volunteers.

Event organizers need hundreds of volunteers to pull off the epic Children’s Parade, Hometown parade and Fireworks show. Tens of thousands of people enjoy this event every year, and you can be part of making the magic happen. Volunteers receive a collector 2018 Fourth of July shirt.

The event occurs on July 4, in downtown Kirkland. Volunteers will meet at the Grape Choice (9 Lake Shore Plaza, Kirkland 98033) to check in before the event.

Volunteers are needed for a variety of shifts. To register, visit: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0945aaa72eabfd0-celebrate3
