July 4th in Newport
Happy Independence Day! Newport will draw over 5,000 to their annual fireworks display. The aerial display will be launched from a barge in the middle of Yaquina Bay. Officials say the best fireworks viewing area will be along the Historic Bayfront on the north side of the bridge, and from the Hatfield Marine Science Center to Rogue Brewery in South Beach. The parking lot at Hatfield will be open to foot traffic only.
This year, many of Newport’s charter services are offering bay trips during the celebration. Interested parties may contact a local charter service for further details.
