The Hubbard Family Foundation has awarded the Edmonds Chamber Foundation a $3,500 grant in support of An Edmonds Kind of 4th.

The grant will help this community-wide, daylong celebration continue for another Fourth of July. The nonprofit Edmonds Chamber Foundation presents the event, which is managed by the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce.

“Festive celebrations like An Edmonds Kind of 4th are important to the fabric of our community,” Chamber President and CEO Greg Urban said.

“It is unique in how it brings together Edmonds residents, families from surrounding communities and visitors from the U.S. and Canada. It is due to the generous support of groups like the Hubbard Family Foundation that An Edmonds Kind of 4th has become the finest celebration of the 4th of July in Snohomish County.”

An Edmonds Kind of 4th features the Beat Brackett 5K, Baby Brackett 1K, Children’s Parade, Main Parade, and evening entertainment and Fireworks.

More than 25,000 people participate annually.

“We hope that the generous support by the Hubbard Family Foundation serves to encourage residents of Edmonds to also help support this annual tradition in our community,” Urban added.

“Many people in the community don’t realize the 4th of July celebration is privately funded by the Edmonds Chamber and the Chamber Foundation. No tax dollars are used; it is because of business owners and private donations that we have fireworks and parades each year.“

Donations made to the Edmonds Chamber Foundation are tax-deductible. To donate or for more information, go to www.edmondschamberfoundation.org.
