There is no parking at the festival, catch the free Everett Transit shuttle at the Everett Community College Broadway lot or at Everett Station. Reasonably sized and small coolers are permitted on shuttle buses. Return trips to parking offered throughout the day, and after the Fireworks show. Wheelchair service from bus drop-off into the park is provided by NJROTC students. Small propane & charcoal barbecues are allowed. Dogs are allowed on a leash.

Shuttle Info Regarding Animals + Strollers / Shopping Carts:

Everett Transit allows animals on the bus. Pets must be kept on your lap or on the floor of the bus; animals may not occupy a customer seat.

Dogs must be on a leash and have a muzzle that covers the mouth and is secured behind the head. Owners must control their animals at all times and clean up after them.

Except for dogs, all animals must be in an approved carrier. Animals not in an approved carrier will not be allowed on the bus.

Service or guide animals are allowed on all Everett Transit buses. Under the American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA), service animals must be harnessed, leashed or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices. In that case, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal or other effective controls.

Strollers & Shopping Carts
To ensure the safety of our customers, strollers and shopping carts should be no more than 22” wide x 24” deep and be free from items hung on the outside.

As required by the ADA, the driver will request you relocate to accommodate a customer with a disability. It may be necessary for you to fold your stroller or grocery cart to keep the aisle clear.

Note: Bus operators may refuse to transport animals or large carry-on items if safety is a concern.
