Fourth of July here is what everyone imagines a small town celebration should be.
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 all sorts of events, including Jerry-can races that honor the courageous -and hardy! - men who used to carry Jerry cans of fuel down the cliff at Port Orford heads for the Coast Guard sea rescue boats.
The fireworks show is a truly amazing display and WildSpring offers a great view of the fireworks from the outdoor sculpture garden.
