The largest Fourth of July celebration on the Palouse needs volunteers

PULLMAN, WA - The Fourth of July is right around the corner, and you have an opportunity to be a part of the largest Independence Day celebration on the Palouse.

Every year Pullman's Chamber of Commerce holds a Fourth of July celebration in Sunnyside Park where families can enjoy food, live music, and of course, fireworks. But the chamber can't do it on their own, they still need about 50 more volunteers to sign up to help.

"Whether you volunteer for just a couple hours, we can use you the day of, there's all sorts of opportunities for volunteering and either way it's going to be a really great celebration," said Pullman Chamber of Commerce Event Coordinator Alexandria Anderson.

Volunteers can sign up to help make treats that will be sold at the event. They can sign up to sell food, drinks or merchandise, or a variety of other jobs.

The celebration starts at 5:00 p.m. on the fourth, and fireworks start around 10:00. If you're interested in helping out, call the chamber at 509-334-3565 or e-mail Event Coordinator Alexandria Anderson at
