Fourth of July here is what everyone imagines a small town celebration should be. In fact, the Port Orford July 4th Jubilee is legendary and could be the largest celebration on the south coast. It's a four or five day event that offers something for just about everyone.
The day starts with an exuberant truck - with loudspeaker! - that travels the length of the town, telling people to rise and shine and start the day with the famous Rotary pancake breakfast. Then, the town gathers along Hwy 101 for a parade at mid-day and a spectacular fireworks exhibit at night - one of the best on the entire coast. You'll enjoy sand sculpture, dingy races, pet show, Port Orford Fishermen's and Fishermen's Wives' Association Salmon Barbecue, Senior Center Spaghetti Feed, quilt show, co-ed slow pitch softball tournament, photography show, Jerry-can races, knot tying contest, flower show, square dancing and a radio-controlled plane demonstration in the famous Cape Blanco winds.
The fireworks show is a truly amazing display (about an hour and 15 min!) and WildSpring offers a great view of the fireworks from the outdoor sculpture garden.
