What’s open in Eastlake on the Fourth? Here’s our list

The Fourth of July is Wednesday and many Eastlake businesses will be open for the holiday. Our list is below.

The weather forecast looks promising. It won’t be the hottest Fourth ever but the clouds should part for the Lake Union fireworks and your backyard barbecue.

If you’re trying to get in or out of Eastlake during the day or during the fireworks show in the evening, check out our previous post for all the details on where to drive and park, and what to tell your guests.

Details on all the events going on around the lake can be found in our previous post and also at the websites for the Family 4th (they do the fireworks) and the Wooden Boat Show (it ends on Wednesday).

One of the best ways to get in and out of Eastlake is on a Metro bus. Metro will be running on a holiday schedule, which is the same as their Sunday schedule. Get more details at Metro’s website.

And Seattle Public Utilities reports that there will be normal garbage collection on Wednesday. The North Transfer Station will be closed. The South Transfer Station in South Park will be open regular hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. More information is at the SPU website.

Have a great Fourth of July!
