I think every village on the coast has a fireworks show over their bay.
Since Waldport has their parade on Beachcomber Days in June, they traditionally have July 3rd Fireworks.
I assume this is so they do not interfere with sister city Yachats’ La-De-Da Parade and Fireworks on July 4th.
There’s actually more room to stand and watch the fireworks than there is for parking. Carpooling is advised.
Music does not accompany this show – at least that we could hear from the north end of the Alsea Bay Bridge.
All we heard were the delayed BOOMs, their echos off each mountain up the bay and then the OOOoooooo’s and AAAaaahhhhhh’s from the crowd.
The reflections on the bay make it twice as stunning!
Waldport put a lot of money and effort into their fireworks show. It lasted for about a half hour. Several times during the show we thought we were seeing the finale’.
Very well done Waldport!
