An anxiety can come along with the Fourth of July. It's a summer day off and you want to make the most of it. If you're still biting your fingernails over how to spend your Fourth, here's a cheat sheet.

Coeur d'Alene's 4th of July Celebration

Free, Coeur d'Alene City Park

A parade through downtown is followed by a festival in the park, including food vendors and games sponsored by Coeur d'Alene Casino Resort Hotel, with fireworks over the lake at dusk.

Pennant Run

$15-$35, Avista Stadium, 602 N. Havana

The 3rd annual Fourth of July Pennant Run includes a 1k, 5k, and Little Sluggers Dash for kids age 3 and under (free), and benefits the Wounded Warrior Project. By registering, participants get a ticket to a Spokane Indians baseball game, and the top male and female finishers will receive a prize. There's also an infield celebration with food and activities during the run.

Pullman's 4th of July Celebration

Free, Sunnyside Park, 147 Cedar St., Pullman

Join this annual community celebration of kids activities, food, live music by Dan Maher and the Fabulous Kingpins, and a fireworks show at dusk.

Spokane's 4th of July Celebration

Free, Riverfront Park

Arts-and-crafts and international food booths will arrive at the park to accompany the rides and attractions. Spokane Jazz Orchestra, a 17-piece big band, will perform a celebratory concert with several guest vocalists. Following events in the park all day, there will be a fireworks show at dusk. For $5 to $20, reserve a seat on a chair directly underneath the fireworks, with a 20 percent discount for military.

Women of Independence & Freedom

Free, Boots Bakery & Lounge, 24 W. Main

This 4th of July open mic hosted by Spokane Feminist Forum invites you to listen or read a favorite speech, poem or letter from a woman throughout American history who helped make our freedoms possible. Exemplary poems will be available if you come without a chosen passage. Dressing up for the reading is welcome; this is an all-ages event.

Liberty Lake 4th of July Celebration
