Naval Station Everett 'Freedom Fest' public ship tours June 30

Jun 15, 2012

Naval Station Everett will once again host its 'Freedom Fest,' on June 30 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. to celebrate our nation's independence with ship tours, food and family entertainment. Entry to the event and ship tours will be free and open to the public.

Visitors will have the opportunity to tour a U.S. Navy Guided-Missile Destroyer, an Oliver Hazard Perry Class Frigate, or a U.S. Coast Guard Cutter.

Ship tours will be offered on a first-come, first-serve basis, starting at 11 a.m. and continuing throughout the event every half-hour. Due to a limited number of tours available throughout the day (approx. 100/half-hour), one ship tour per guest will be allowed.

Parking and bus transportation will be available at Everett Transit Station (on 32nd St. and Smith Ave) or at the Everett Marina (on 13th and 18th St. along W. Marine View Dr.). Due to very limited parking on base, carpooling and public transportation is highly encouraged.

All visitors and vehicles should expect random airport-type screenings and should be prepared to present a photo ID upon entry.

The following items are prohibited on base: No backpacks, bags larger than purse-size, pets (excluding service animals), weapons of any kind (firearms, knives, etc.), explosives (fireworks or ammunition), coolers, or alcoholic beverages. No liquids will be permitted on the ships.

Information and updates will be available through the base information hotline at 425-304-5665 or online at
