Independnce Day is Fireworks-Free in Cannon Beach. The percussive explosions that produce excitement for many of us can actually cause anxiety or even terror for house pets and wildlife. And in a more rural or wilderness setting, fireworks can have the same effect on wildlife.The litter and debris are also a threat to the delicate ecological system.
So instead, build a bonfire, roast marshmallows and wave a flag to celebrate Independence Day in Cannon Beach.
In the past, the day typically starts with a big, family-friendly red, white and blue parade through town! The Cannon Beach Chamber of Commerce will confirm if the Parade is on for 2023, after being postponed recently due to the pandemic. Check back here.
