Fourth of July Fireworks Presentation Canceled at Riverfront Park

Salem, Ore. — The City of Salem wants to wish our community a safe and happy holiday weekend. As a reminder, our Fourth of July fireworks presentation at Riverfront Park has been canceled this year.  Phase 2 guidance continues to require limits to outdoor gatherings to minimize the potential spread of COVID-19. 

Please continue the safe and responsible use of our public parks. This includes maintaining adequate social distance, refraining from smoking, and keeping pets on their leash. All City parks close at dark and the use of fireworks is prohibited anywhere on park grounds.  

We encourage Salem families and friends to celebrate safely. Please visit the State Fire Marshall webpage for updated tips on firework safety and regulations, and always remember to:

  • Store fireworks out of children’s reach
  • Keep pets safe indoors
  • Soak used fireworks in a bucket of water
  • Properly dispose of soaked fireworks in the trash
