Lincoln County Historical Society Presents:
Fireworks at the Maritime Museum
On Thursday July 4th beginning at 8:00 pm, the Lincoln County Historical Society invites all to an Independence Day Celebration at the Pacific Maritime Heritage Center. This event, first held in 2013, has become a local favorite.
The main attraction, at this family friendly event, are the unmatched views of the Bayfront fireworks. Relax in a comfortable chair and ooh & ahh at the glorious pyrotechnics show straight across from the outside deck.
This year’s celebration will be extra special with the opening of the newly completed Doerfler Family Theater. Local historical videos will be shown at 8pm, along with a live musical performance by Rand Bishop at 9pm. Oregon native Rand Bishop is a
Grammy-nominated, BMI Award-winning songwriter, platinum music producer, and recording artist.
There’ll be popcorn for the theater, ice-cream for the fireworks, and lemonade to wash them down. Attendees will also have access to all current exhibits at the museum including the recently opened Diane O’Leary exhibit in the Galley Gallery.
Admission to this fun annual event is Free for Members, $10 for Non-Members, with Kids 12 and under free.
Parking will be at an absolute premium, and attendees are encouraged to walk, bicycle, car pool, or catch a cab to the Bayfront.
For more information, call 541-265-7509.
