San Francisco and the Bay Area will have many July 4th events. Perhaps the biggest will be the fireworks at Fisherman's Wharf. There will also be a family festival held at The Cannery nearby. A parade and will be held in the town Sausalito just over the Golden Gate Bridge.
In Phoenix, the Children's Museum will invite people to get out of the July heat to build ice castles.
In Seattle, the biggest event will likely be the Chase Family 4th at Lake Union at Gas Works Park. The all-day event features a wide variety of family events such as kite making and face painting. At 10 pm, there will be a fireworks show.
