This event is sponsored by the Cheeseburger Babies Foundation, the charitable arm of Red Onion Burgers with contributions from many community sponsors and partners.
The organization promises a bigger and better event than in 2017 with additional entertainment and extended hours. The event kicks off at 3:00 p.m. with family games, pony rides, bouncy houses, food booths, food trucks, face painting, crafts activities, carnival games and booths from local businesses.
The stage area includes live music, a DJ, pie eating contest, gunny sack races, and introductions of local sponsors and officials. The evening’s finale features a fabulous fireworks show choreographed to music that will light up the skies of Lake Ballinger.
Personal fireworks are illegal in Mountlake Terrace. However, Cheeseburgers Babies Foundation obtained a special events permit to allow fireworks and an agreement was approved by the City Council for this event in February. The venue continues at Ballinger Park and the fireworks will be shot from the boat launch over the lake. The spectator viewing area will be located just south of the Mountlake Terrace Senior/Community Center also known as Ballinger Clubhouse.
Since Tuesday is not a legal holiday, parking will be limited during typical work hours at some locations. Parking and shuttle service have been secured at the Mountlake Terrace Transit Center (6001 236th Street SW), Creekside Church (7011 226th Place SW) and at the Nile Country Club (6601 244th Street SW) where parking is available but no shuttle service. Attendees who are able to utilize the Lakeview Trail are encouraged to park at the Nile and walk to the park.
Park and clubhouse restrooms will be closed to the public but there will be portable toilets on site. Be prepared for any weather conditions, low lighting conditions upon exit, probable shuttle waits, and bring chairs or blankets to sit on.
