Lincoln City Announces Major New Fireworks Show
Lincoln City, OR – The Stars and Stripes will fly proudly over Lincoln City during the Fourth of July. Celebrate our nation’s Independence Day with a parade, craft fair, and fireworks.
The fireworks display will begin at dusk over Siletz Bay in the historic Taft District of Lincoln City. Public parking is available in the area as well as shuttle service. The free shuttle will operate from 6pm until midnight on July 4th with stops at Oregon Coast Community College and Taft High School.
“Our world-class fireworks display over Siletz Bay will achieve a new level of excellence this year,” says Ed Dreistadt, Director of the Lincoln City Visitor and Convention Bureau. “We are adding computer-timed launches and music synchronization to the biggest and best fireworks show we’ve ever done.”
For the first time, the fireworks over Siletz Bay will be electronically fired. As opposed to manually fired displays, the new electronic display will be perfectly timed for a better viewing experience. In addition, the fireworks will be set to music. Onlookers can dance the night away as colors fill the sky!
Gleneden Beach, just south of Lincoln City, is offering up great family entertainment with a pancake breakfast, craft fair and their annual parade. Start the day off with a pancake breakfast including all the fixings from 8-11am at the Gleneden Beach Community Club located at 110 Azalea St. The cost is $6 for adults and $3 for children ages 4-10. Explore the craft fair and food court from 9am-3pm at Eden Hall located at 6675 Gleneden Beach Loop Rd. There will be arts, crafts, food, and live music to enjoy. The 22nd Annual Fourth of July Parade will begin at 1pm following a route through the Gleneden Beach community. The parade route map is available at www.oregoncoast.org/4th-of-july-celebration.
Please exercise caution during the Fourth of July Celebration and expect increased traffic along Highway 101. Stay safe, and have fun!
