2022 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?

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 and running races. In Historic Old Town Florence watch fireworks over the Siuslaw River, and in Creswell show up for their classic Independence Day parade. As we learn more, we'll post it here!

Where to Watch Fireworks

The best place to watch fireworks are at event venues. 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 local restrictions. Within Eugene, fireworks that are legal for retail purchase may be used only between July 3 and July 4. Fireworks are banned in Eugene from south of 18th Avenue east of Agate Street, encompassing the South Hills.

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. Firework sales start June 23.
