The Fun’d the 4th Committee is ramping up the Fourth of July in Brookings now officially called the “4th of July Family Fun Festival!”

It’s going to be a full day affair down at the Kite Field in the Port of Brookings Harbor, starting with a pancake breakfast and hot air balloon rides, a tri-tip barbecue, kid’s games and of course, fireworks.

There will be live music from two bands —The Boys of Summer Eagles Tribute band and our own local Fleetwood Back. Shuttle service to the Kite Field will be available from various locations.

Currently, there is open booth space for any non-profit, event group or community organization who wishes to sell raffle tickets, have a bake sale, run a carnival game or just get the word out about themselves. For more information about setting up a booth, contact Barbara Ciaramella at the Brookings-Harbor Visitor Center at 541-813-2300.
