July 4 fireworks at Downtown Park
Thursday, June 25, 2015

Up to 50,000 people are expected at Bellevue Downtown Park for the annual July 4 fireworks display. It's the 25th year the event has been celebrated downtown, and if past years are any indication, attendees are in for a fabulous time.

What is different this year is that extra-dry, warm conditions will require an extra measure of vigilance across the city to keep people and property safe from accidental fires.

Santa and Mrs. Claus may be on vacation right now, but you can donate toys for kids in need in July.

Bellevue Fire and Parks & Community Services are hosting "Joy in July," a toy and food drive throughout the month. Donations will be collected at all Bellevue fire stations and City Hall.

Though the holidays are a half a year away, the drive aims to gather toys to distribute to children in need this December. With more than 6,000 toys distributed in 2014, the shelves need restocking in order to provide toys for children later this year.

City Manager Brad Miyake signs an agreement with Sound Transit on the cover the current issue of It's Your City.
City Manager Brad Miyake signs an agreement with Sound Transit on the cover the current issue of It's Your City.

Bellevue's new East Link pact with Sound Transit, the city's emergence as a tourist destination and the hiring of police and fire chiefs are featured in the June issue of the resident newsletter It's Your City.

A revised agreement with Sound Transit signed in April, which ensures the project meets the needs of the city and the region, merits both a council column by Deputy Mayor Kevin Wallace and a front-page article. A report from Visit Bellevue Washington, which manages tourism marketing for the city, notes that Bellevue visitors spent $736 million last year.
