Amazon, that behemoth online retailer rooted in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood, is joining those businesses who sponsor the Family Fourth at Lake Union, which has been in jeopardy of disappearing in recent years..

Enjoy the show. And don’t forget to show your gratitude if you’re able by participating in the Third Annual 5th of July Lake Union Cleanup, sponsored for the 5th year in a row by Starbucks.
