New Year's Eve for the Tame and Wild on Oregon Coast

A coastal highlight is the wacky impromptu parade that Manzanita does at midnight.

(Oregon Coast) – There are bundles of fun to be had on the coast at the end of the year, whether you’re looking for a raucous bar situation or an upscale dining experience. Then there’s the curiosities that can’t be classified.

See a full list of Oregon coast bars here.

New Year's Eve Lodging Openings on Oregon Coast Here is a list of openings for those who haven’' reserved their room yet.

Manzanita's Wacko New Year’s Eve Midnight Parade. A little known secret about Manzanita’s New Year’s celebrations is its New Year Parade at midnight, which has been a surreal little local tradition that’s been happening for several years. Generally, people just stagger out of the local bars and perform an oddball parade of sorts – proof again of the kooky and creative side to the fun-loving locals. Now, only the San Dune exists in Manzanita, but some may be coming from nearby The Wateringhole in Nehalem or Sea Shack in Wheeler. In the past, there was, among other things, a large dragon costume. It’s quite a spectacle. In recent years, the city grudgingly gave its okay for the parade, partially on the basis it would happen with or without the permit.

Yachats' Landmark Lounge.

Yachats: Merry Prankster New Year's Eve Party, with Norman Bean and guests. The Kesey Karnival comes to the Koast to kick 2009 out of town. For those who have forgotten the '60s, the Merry Pranksters were born on a bus trip from Eugene to New York in 1964, a ride intended to celebrate the publication of Ken Kesey's book "Sometimes a Great Notion" and to meet and greet the great Doctor Timothy Leary. The bus trip is the subject of Tom Wolfe's "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test," and led to the psychedelic scene and the rise of the Grateful Dead. Kesey, who had a summer home just outside Yachats, died in 2001 but his family and friends have kept his spirit and philosophy alive through (among other things) the replica bus FURTHUR 2 and the Normal Bean Show. We get the full-out, pranksterized version of the latter on the last day of 2009. Hey, maybe Ginsberg can be conjured up. Landmark Restaurant and Lounge. Hwy 101, Yachats. (541) 547-5459. www.landmark-yachats.com.
