Safety requirements include face masks and social distancing.

The Puyallup Tribe’s Firecracker Alley will run June 19 to July 4 at 2102 Alexander Ave. in Tacoma, near the Emerald Queen Riverboat dock.

The annual event will include about 85 Tribal member-owned-and-operated stands, featuring fireworks, drinks and food. Hours are 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. through June 30. After that, stands will be operate 24 hours a day.

“Firecracker Alley is important to many of us,” said Puyallup Tribal Chairman David Z. Bean. “It is where many of us got our start in business. It has become a family tradition.” 

As a safety precaution against COVID-19, this year’s season is much shorter than originally planned, and the Firecracker Alley’s annual fireworks show has been canceled. In addition, everyone entering the property will be required to wear a mask and practice social distancing.
