Newport Fireworks at Dusk: One of my personal favorite shows, which I will most likely be seeing again this year is happening at the shore of Yaquina Bay. With the incredible show reflecting off the water, this show is extra impressive as the explosions will echo and bounce off the surrounding hills and mountains. The flares are pretty awesome too, which can be seen shooting off boats on the water.
Fireworks in Waldport: Starting at dusk, head over to Alsea Bay to see a great show and even be seen from vantage points miles away on the central Oregon Coast.
All you can eat pancakes at Yachats Lions: Feast on as many pancakes as your tummy can handle with scrambled eggs, choice of ham or sausage, milk, tea or coffee.
