Each year residents of Lincoln City and visitors from around the state come to Devils Lake to enjoy our July fireworks display and boat parade. The Devils Lake Neighborhood Association has been the proud sponsor of these events for the past six years. Our show has always been coordinated with the City of Lincoln City's show in Taft. Last week the City cancelled its show on July 4th due to the Coronavirus crisis and this week the DLNA Board announced that it was postponing the 3rd of July Fireworks display and Boat Parade to a future date, likely July 3rd 2021.
“It is with deep regret, we have had to make this decision," said Mark Christie, president of Devils Lake Neighborhood Association, in a statement. "This is one of our favorite community events. We look forward to coming together next year for the Independence Day celebration.” To that end, we are accepting donations if you wish to contribute in advance to our 2021 event, simply click here to help ensure a fantastic event for next year.
The DLNA Fireworks display is not the only local summer celebration that has been canceled or postponed due to the coronavirus crisis. The Lincoln City Summer Kite Festival, and Pixiefest both originally planned for June 27 and 28, were canceled or postponed in April due to the coronavirus. As Oregon begins to return to normal, we wish you all well and hope you have a wonderful summer on Devils Lake.
