The Fourth of July in Lincoln County is always busy time for locals and tourists. Devils Lake and Waldport, of course, always like to jump the gun on the 3rd, which is Friday. Both fireworks displays on Devils Lake and on Waldport’s Bayshore begin at dusk and can be seen throughout their respective areas.
Then for those who hold more true to the July 4th tradition when it comes to fireworks, you can start out their day early with a big Gleneden Beach Community Bash with a pancake feed and a craft fair. The food starts at 8am at the Gleneden Beach Community Club. Then more of the same at Eden Hall from 9 to 3. The annual Gleneden Beach 4th of July Parade starts at 1pm…and it’s a long one so bring some sunscreen if we get lucky with clear skies.
Lincoln City/Siletz Bay Fireworks will shoot off into the sky at around 10pm – easily viewed all over Siletz Bay and the south end of Lincoln City. Shuttle buses will be making runs with pickups at Taft High and at OCCC Lincoln City. Runs 6pm to midnight.
Then Newport gets into the act with their big fireworks display. Starts at 9pm, but that might be a bit early. But at least be ready for it. The fireworks will be launched from a barge in Yaquina Bay, giving everyone ring side seats.
