If its still the way it use to be when I lived there, Richardson Park (Fern Ridge) is always good. Cause you have the club show and all the illegal's that everyone purchase's in Washington.

We are trying to figure out where to be/what to do as well...

Tomorrow night - Wednesday the 2nd - I think there is supposed to be a fireworks extravaganza at Civic Stadium (near Amazon pool/community center) to celebration the beginning of the minor league baseball season (it's the Eugene Emerald's first home game of the season... or something like that ) Here's a link: Eugene Emeralds: Home Look for the little picture of fireworks on the left of the page...

We have always gone to the coast - either to Seaside, Manzanita, Nehalem Bay areas (north coast) or Florence (hwy 126 straight west from Eugene) - for the 4th, but this year we're staying in town. Our experiences on the coast for the 4th have always been fun.

I think Bend is doing something - an old fashioned fourth - and I think Harrisburg also does a fourth of July celebration.

I will google the Fern Ridge 4th and see if I can find info on it... thanks for the tip!!

Hey! Go check out Interactive map: Oregon Fireworks Guide - OregonLive.com

They have a cool interactive map of fireworks shows and 4th celebrations all over the state.

... and the Eugene Yacht Club is planning a fireworks show (@ Fern Ridge) on the 4th, soon as it gets dark!

It sounds like the biggest display in Oregon might be in Portland... 2008 fireworks (http://www.waterfrontbluesfest.com/news/2008fireworks.html - broken link)

It's that time of year again! Just thought I'd "bump" this thread. That's what it's called, right?

Does anybody have any plans for the 4th?
