Oregon Coast Fourth of July Preview, 2013
(Oregon Coast) – An enormous array of Fourth of July celebrations are in store for this year's Independence Day along the Oregon coast. Some don't even celebrate theirs on the fourth, but rather the third or even July 6. Some don't have fireworks but one has fire dancers. All will be exploding with fun over the course of that Thursday and through the weekend. (Above: Yachats' celebration)
