    Seafair 4th of July @ Gasworks Park - No Firearms.

    I asked about the No Firearms statement on their website:

    Hello,

    Seafair is granted an Exclusive Use Permit for the Seafair Summer Fourth Fireworks Celebration in Gas Works Park by the City of Seattle Parks and Recreation Department. This exclusive use permit is within the fenced perimeter of the Park, and authorizes Seafair to mandate rules that maximizes safety at the event. This includes conducting a bag search at the gates and enforcing our No Weapons rule.

    Our exclusive use permit creates a private venue format similar to a stadium or concert venue, allowing Seafair to set rules for the safety of the attendees. These rules were generated through collaborative input from Seattle Parks, Seattle Police, Seattle Fire, and Seafair.

    Seafair’s top priority is to provide Seattle residents and visitors with great entertainment in a safe environment. We hope you will join us at the Seafair Summer Fourth, however no weapons will be allowed in the Park.

    Thank you for your inquiry.

    Safe environment ? ? Suure, criminals follow the rules, right?

    Aren't certain types of fireworks considered firearms under state law? There are some really elaborate ones...

    Will every inch of the park be fenced off? What will they do to law abiding citizens standing right outside the fenced portions?

    The only comment I have is a 'Use Permit' is not a Lease or Rental agreement, I would be curious the text of the permit.

    Here is the link to the Fireworks Show permit I found on the City Website.

    There may be another permit but I could not find it.

    The problem with America is stupidity.
    I'm not saying there should be capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

    I see nothing stating that they have exclusive use. Did I miss something?

    It's nice to know they work cheap. After all, Judas sold out his friend for 30.

    Apparently guns are okay for them, just not for thee.

    I would be curious as to how they're going to enforce that, that's not a controlled event, it's an open event where anyone can walk in, do they claim a right to push trespassing charges?

    Really Carry on, this is an illegal action on their part.
