It’s that time of year – fireworks! We all feel like little kids again when we here the first whistle and pop. Here are the shows, parades and activities happening to celebrate the Fourth of July in Seaside 2018.
July 4th 2018
Seaside’s celebration begins with the annual parade at 11:00 a.m. Enjoy vibrant floats and music all along the route, beginning at 12th Avenue and ending at the Seaside Museum. After the floats pass you by, head down to the museum for the 30th annual Old Fashioned Social. Party-goers will be greeted with games, food, and a four-hour cakewalk in the yard, along with the opportunity for a free tour through the museum. Music from Smoke and Mirrors entertains while guests engage in BINGO and silent auction bids. The event begins at 11:00 a.m. and ends at three, allowing you to head over to the Seaside Farmers Market.
This weekly event hosts delicious fare along with gifts, flowers and art. Visitors can pick up veggies for their fourth of July barbeque or just enjoy the culture on the corner of Broadway and Highway 101.
For a unique ambiance and a plethora of pyrotechnics, hit up the Seaside Fireworks Celebration later that night. Clocking in at 25 minutes of bursts and booms, this show is sure to impress. The best seat in the house is along the beach with KSWB 840 AM on the radio. If you choose to enjoy the ocean views during the day, be sure to stake out a safe spot for a fire and barbeque before the show, which starts at dusk (10:00 p.m.). For rules and regulations on the personal use of fireworks and parking, see the City of Seaside website.
Help out the Beach Drive Buccaneers on Thursday, July 5 for the annual Treasure the Beach Clean-up. The beach will need a little TLC after the fourth of July beach-goers head home on Wednesday night. Head out to help with a bucket and water to stay hydrated at 8:00 a.m. Gloves and bags are provided as everyone pitches in to keep our coast clean.
