(Tillamook, Oregon) – Just about the entire area of Tillamook County on the north Oregon coast is diving into some kind of Fourth of July revelry or another. More than just a few beach towns will be celebrating, and there's more firework shows compacted into this single coastal region than elsewhere in the state. (Above: fireworks in Rockaway Beach, Oregon Coast Beach Connection)

Oregon's Tillamook Coast has its fingers on the party buttons, with more information recently released by the region's tourism entity, Visit Tillamook Coast. Get ready for a full plate of fun in at least five different locales.

Rockaway Beach. The north Oregon coast burgh has always had one of the best small town fireworks displays, and it's back this year along with a bevy of other events.

There's a special military jet flyover with the parade called "Celebrate Together Again" at 11 a.m. The annual Fourth of July Parade gets started then, running between N. 3rd Ave. and S. 3rd Ave.

The “Porch “Parade” is ongoing in the background, where local businesses and residents decorate their exterior. Judging is done at noon for this. Visitors get to vote as well.

Wiener Dog Races happen at Seaview City Park at 1 p.m. The final race is for All Dog Breeds (well behaved humans allowed to accompany).

Kids activities take place on the beach, hosted by Rockaway Beach Lions Club. These go from 1 pm – 2:30 pm.

Then it's fireworks at dusk. A little tip: fireworks are shot off from the center of town, and there's more crowding closer. Stick to the more southern or more northern edges of town and you'll have less parking and traffic issues. You can see plenty from a mile or so away.

Oceanside. The tiny town turns 100 on July 4, and it's holding a three-day event from July 3 – 5, which includes food carts, live music and a historical display of photos and oral histories. There's a 4th of July Parade on the big day, and a special tribute to the Rosenberg Family and the Oceanside Party on Tuesday July 5th @ 1:30 pm. The Rosenberg brothers were the two that started the whole town, which got its name on July 4, 1922.

Cloverdale. Just inland from Pacific City, there's the 40th Annual Clover's Day Celebration - A South COWnty Tradition. Clover's Day is an annual celebration of Cloverdale and all it has to offer. Known as Oregon's best kept secret, Cloverdale is nestled along the scenic Nestucca River on Hwy 101.

There are a variety of family-friendly activities planned from 10 am – 2 pm, but the highlight is always the Clover's Day Parade - led by Clover the Cow. There will be face painting, food, live music, bubbles, a cruise-in and a petting zoo.

Pacific City. Word on the north Oregon coast is this will be their biggest show ever. It's always an interesting one, watching shapes and shadows light up on the cape from the mortars shot a ways away.

Neskowin. The Annual July 4th Neskowin Walkabout is back. Gather together at 9:30 am at the Proposal Rock Inn parking lot. The walkabout starts at 10 am. Around 10 pm or so, fireworks go off at Proposal Rock.
