After 98 years, the Burien Fourth of July Parade is still going strong! Gather around to take in the patriotic spectacle of marching bands, floats, and more. The parade starts at 3 p.m., so get your spot early! The Burien Parade remains one of the most popular Fourth of July parades this side of Seattle. The parade typically lasts two hours and, as always, is free to the public. Many local businesses keep their doors open on the Fourth, so you don’t have to worry about grabbing a bite after the parade. That is if you don’t have a barbecue to get to!

16 small potato rolls, toasted

Salt and pepper, to taste

Fill indention with cheese and pinch meat around to seal. Then gently form balls into 3/4-inch-thick patties. Season patties. 5. Meanwhile, heat a cast-iron skillet to medium-high. 6. Lightly coat skillet with oil and cook patties in batches. Brown one side undisturbed, about 3 minutes. Carefully flip and cook until desired doneness, about 3 minutes for medium. 7. Serve on toasted potato rolls with your favorite accompaniments. • 3
