Parade, Fireworks, and More in Rockaway Beach
The 4th of July is a fun time to be down at the coast and Rockaway Beach is home to a fantastic line up of activities to keep the whole family busy. Normally a quiet beach town, this place is already starting to get a little busy for the holiday celebration that is coming. The fireworks show will get started at 10PM from the Wayside area, run by the local volunteer fire fighters the community hosts a huge fireworks show. The long beaches north and south of the town are perfect for setting up a beach fire and hanging out for the evening.
Additional Fourth of July Activities
A Bake Sale at the Lions Club Building starting at 9AM, there is always a good cookie, piece of pie or something else at these sales so check it out if you are walking around in the morning before the parade.
The Parade goes through downtown Rockaway starting at 11AM, the main road through town will be closed down and people do start finding their place to sit and watch the show about an hour before so plan ahead to get a good place to watch.
7th Annual Firecracker Weiner Nationals One of the best activities in town gets started at 12:00PM at the Phyllis Baker City Park. These four legged hot dogs run fast, some crash hard, and one gets to proudly be named the champion of the dachshund races.
Be careful on the beach with fireworks as there are tons of other people out there. Make sure if you start a beach fire to properly put it out at the end of the evening, there is nothing worse then getting burned on the feet the day after fourth of july when going for a beach walk cause someone did not extinguish the coals.
