Celebrate the Fourth All Day Long in Boardman

Celebrate Independence Day in style on Thursday, July 4, 2024, in Boardman, Ore.

Kickstart your day with a scrumptious country breakfast at 7 a.m. hosted by FFA students at the picturesque Boardman Marina Pavilion. At 11 a.m., witness the town burst into life with a colorful community parade up South Main Street, Soutwest Wilson Road, down Southwest Locust Road and Southwest Kinkade Road.

Next, dive into a day brimming with excitement at Boardman Marina Park starting at noon. Grab your favorite spot with chairs or blankets and sway to the beat of DJ Kora’s music and an electrifying lineup of bands.

Thrill-seekers will find their fix with a bouncy house, a daring mechanical bull, a competitive kickball tournament and creative face-painting. Meanwhile, young ones can revel in organized kids’ games. Browse through artisan booths and tantalize your taste buds with offerings from food vendors.

As the sun dips, groove to the sounds of Juanantonio Lomas and Victory Swig, and cap off the night with the soulful tunes of country artist Zach Grooms.

Stay for the grand finale — a breathtaking fireworks funded by the Morrow County Unified Recreation District.
