OLD FASHOINED JULY 4, WITH GRAND FIREWORKS SHOW IN FLORENCE, WILL BE A BLAST

July 4, 2022 @ 12:00 PM - 11:00 PM

Family, Friends, Apple Pie, Parade and Fireworks – We’ve got it all going on in Florence for this year’s Independence Day! Make your plans to celebrate today!

 

The Florence Area Chamber of Commerce, the City of Florence, and the Port of Siuslaw have come together to produce Florence’s annual 4th of July fireworks display.

 

The fireworks will be shot over the Siuslaw River from the east end of the Port of Siuslaw Campground in Historic Old Town beginning at about 10:00 p.m. on Monday, July 4. The location provides a multitude of great vantage points for spectators with the colorful 30-minute program reflecting off the river.

 

This year, Florence Habitat for Humanity is working with the City to organize a communitywide Porch Parade from June 27 to July 4, and a Bicycle Parade down Bay Street on July 4, along with the annual pie and watermelon eating contests, music, and other fun during the day in Historic Old Town Florence.

 

The Port, the City, and the Chamber will work again with the experts at Western Display Fireworks. This year the City of Florence, the Port of Siuslaw and the Florence Area Chamber are jointly funding the big event (more than $24,000). We look forward to celebrating our nation’s independence and encourage everyone in Florence to find safe and fun ways to celebrate Independence Day this year, and to look to the skies that evening for the beautiful display we have planned.

 

Businesses, civic clubs, or individuals interested in making any size contribution to demonstrate their appreciation and offset the cost of the event are asked to contact Hannigan at 541-997-3128 or mail/drop off a check at the Chamber’s Visitors Center, 290 Highway 101.

 

For the Porch Parade, businesses and residents are encouraged to decorate their porch, yard, or front window to show their patriotic community spirit. To participate you can register your home or business online at https://www.florencehabitat.org/. Maps showing all registered participants will be available at there.

 

The Bike Parade registration is from 9:00 to 9:45 a.m. at Gazebo Park in Old Town. The parade begins at 10:00. Decorate your bike, scooter, wagon, or yourself, and bring your family and friends down to the parade in Old Town.

 

The annual pie and watermelon eating contests, coordinated by Florence Habitat for Humanity, will take place in the grassy area of the Port of Siuslaw Parking lot at the east end of Bay Street. Registration is at noon and the competition begins at 2:00 p.m. Each category is limited to the first 36 people to register in each category—ages 5 to 10 years, 11 to 15 years, and 16+.

 

Music and entertainment by DJ Al Rojas starts at the Port property at 8:00 p.m. Patriotic music by KCST 106.9 FM accompany the fireworks show.
