2024 Independence Day Celebrations & Fireworks

It's Independence Day! What will you do for the Fourth of July? Romp in the park, go berry picking at a local farm or hike to a waterfall?

Bust out the barbecues and celebrate July 4th with picnics, parades and fireworks. From the Oregon Coast to the Cascades, our region's many small towns get in the spirit. There is so much summertime fun to be had! Popular Fourth of July traditions include festivals, running races and the rodeo. In Historic Old Town Florence watch fireworks over the Siuslaw River, and in Creswell catch the fireworks show after a fantastic community parade and in Eugene see the skies light up after the baseball game and the rodeo. As we learn more about upcoming events, we'll post it here!

Where to Watch Fireworks

The best places to watch fireworks are at event venues. These include Springfield's Light of Liberty event, the Eugene Emeralds Baseball game, the Eugene Pro Rodeo, the Cottage Grove Speedway, Creswell and Historic Old Town Florence. You may also be able to see some the larger displays from nearby balconies, roof-top decks or scenic viewpoints.

If you plan to light your own fireworks, please note the new local restrictionsWithin Eugene, all buying, selling and setting off of fireworks, including sparklers, is banned within city limits.

Additionally, fireworks are never permitted on public lands. Please be mindful of campfires and fire safety over the holiday weekend.

As always when lighting personal fireworks follow safety guidelines. Only use approved, legal fireworks. Stay away from dry foliage and structures and always have a water bucket and hose nearby. Supervise children closely and be considerate of your neighbors and pets. Loud noises and lights can be traumatic to veterans with PTS and frighten sensitive pets. Make sure your own pets are secured safely indoors. 

Camp Out, Cook Out or Road Trip

Celebrate America with traditional things to do from backyard barbecues to picnics in the park. Explore the region from the Oregon Coast to the Cascade Mountains, or should we say from the "purple mountain majesties...above thy fruited plain" to the "shining sea"?
