Mayor McGinn says Fourth of July fireworks show could still be in the cards this year

Seattle may have a Fourth of July fireworks show this year after all, if Mayor Mike McGinn’s hopes are realized.

The mayor says he’s working with Seafair officials and the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce to create a plan to have a fireworks show that can be sustained year after year.

He said he was optimistic that there will be a fireworks show in Seattle this year and that  he will announce details soon.

He said in a statement that he was disappointed that the annual show put together by One Reel in recent years was canceled this year after fundraising efforts failed to reach the$500,000 needed to produce the event.
