Whether you're taking some extended vacation time off this week or not, there's some fun activities in the Yakima Valley worth checking out this 4th of July.

I, for one, am planning on taking my daughter out to a baseball game this week to see the Pippins take on the Cowlitz Black Bears. I'm thinking about inviting some friends to come and bring their families, too, so that it will feel like a big party in the bleachers.

Many residents in the Yakima Valley are planning on taking their friends and family to see the fireworks at the lawn of the Sundome.

There's not just going to be a firework show at State Fair Park, there will also be carnival rides for the kids and live music entertainment. The best part is that the entertainment is free!
