Red, White and ... Lime?

Everett once again has paired up with KXA and KRKO to put on the most spectacular fireworks show North of the Sno-King line for Everett’s July 4th Celebration. With a draw that brings in several thousand area residents to the downtown core, things can expect to be a little more hectic and celebratory than your run of the mill Thursday.

This year, the Parade begins at 11 am near Wetmore and Colby; The Festival runs from 1pm-11pm at Legion Memorial, with the fireworks slotted to begin at 10pm over Port Gardner Bay. You can also find the Yankee Doodle Dash at the Y on Rockefeller at 8am, a special holiday opening of the Imagine Children’s Museum from 10am-4pm and the Classic Rock 4th of July at Boxcar Park (this costs $25 at the door) as well as few other local offerings.

What’s new this year, besides the festivities? The Lime Scooters you’ve been spotting or using around town recently. Lime is taking a moment to remind everybody of the do’s-and-do-nots when it comes to safety.

“If you’re (smartly) leaving your car at home to ride a bike or scooter past the gridlock, safety is a must. Here are five tips from Lime for safely getting around the city during the Fourth of July festivities.”

  1. Don’t drink and scoot/drive/ride. No matter what form of transportation you’re using for your July 4th festivities—car, bike, scooter, etc.—leave the driving to someone else if you’ve been drinking. Do not mix the beer garden with Lime Scooters.
  2. Helmets are your friend. You wouldn’t hop on your bike without a helmet, would you? Scooters are no different—protect your head and wear a helmet.
  3. Sharing isn’t caring. Electric scooters are designed for one rider at a time. If your pal needs a ride, get them their own scooter for optimal fun and safety.
  4. Make eye contact with others using the road. Making eye contact with drivers not only makes them notice you instead of seeing through you, but it may also remind them of your shared humanity.
  5. We’re all in this together. Be respectful of those around you. Scooters belong in the bike lane, so use them whenever possible and don’t block walkways when parking your scooter.

Lastly, Lime is asking its supporters and enthusiasts to complete its Tri-Lime-athon by riding three products (e-bike, scooter, pod) within seven days of each other. The first ten people to do so will receive $50 in Lime credit after they have submitted a selfie with their trip summaries to tri-lime@li.me.

Ride safe! Plan ahead for responsible transportation, hydrate, and have fun.
