Every 4th of July thousands of visitors from across the country travel to Birch Bay for an amazing weekend of fireworks and fun. While daylight hours are spent enjoying all that Birch Bay has to offer, things get busy as soon as dusk approaches.
While nearby Blaine does put on a professional show each year, most visitors opt to stay in the bay to watch the thousands of non-stop individual fireworks light up the sky. Visitors often comment that it’s one of the most impressive 4th of July celebrations they’ve ever seen.
Please remember fireworks are prohibited in Birch Bay State Park! Please be safe and clean up any debris you may see!
