Independence Day Firework

It is with great pleasure the Florence Area Chamber of Commerce presents the 2019 Annual Independence Day Fireworks!  Special thanks to the Port of Siuslaw for providing the launching location!

Each year, with additional help from many generous business owners and private citizens, our Florence Area Chamber of Commerce funds and produces the annual Fourth of July Fireworks Celebration. For the past several years, we’ve been able to present an outstanding display over the Port of Siuslaw which draws thousands of spectators to our beautiful town.

The 4th of July is a special day for Americans to celebrate our nation’s birthday and honor the patriotism of those who made our independence possible. Economic conditions have been it difficult for many smaller communities to continue to fund a fireworks display, but our Chamber Board is committed to maintaining this long standing tradition in Florence. An old-fashioned watermelon and pie eating contest earlier in the day will kick-off the festivities and set the stage for a fun-filled, family oriented celebration.

The annual cost to the Chamber to fund this project is approximately $18,000.  We are asking our members and citizens at large to make a donation to help off-set the cost of the fireworks and insure that we are able to continue this tradition for years to come. Any amount, large or small, is needed and welcomed! Check out the “Special Event Sponsorship Package” and get more bang for your buck!
