2020 Fourth of July

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? Remember to stay close to home in your own community and enjoy the nearby attractions. Better yet, bust out the barbecue and celebrate July 4th in your own backyard! 

Where to Watch Fireworks

At this time, many of our Independence Day celebrations have been canceled along with their fireworks shows. If this changes we will update this page.

If you plan to light your own fireworks at home, please note that there are new restrictions this year. Within Eugene, fireworks that are legal for retail purchase may be used only between July 3 and July 4.

As always when lighting personal fireworks follow safety guidelines. Make sure they are permitted in your neighborhood. Only use approved, legal fireworks. Stay away from dry foliage and structures and always have a water bucket and accessible hose. 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. Firework sales start June 23.

What to Grill Up

Pick up a growler and a grill kit to go from your favorite restaurants. Falling Sky offers a BBQ Beef Feast for four which includes slow cooked BBQ brisket, BBQ sauce, toppings, salad and dessert or a Grillmaster Cheeseburger Time kit with uncooked beef patties, all the fixings, salad and dessert.

The best local barbecue can be found at these BBQ joints around Eugene - Springfield. From paper… More Info
