The Sunriver community does not allow fireworks, so if you want to see a traditional Fourth of July fireworks display, you will want to head over to Bend. This community is just a short drive away and the fireworks display is well worth the effort to get there.

Specifically, the fireworks display will be launched from Pilot Butte, the tallest point around Bend. This local icon stands tall in the backdrop of the city and is the perfect spot for fireworks to launch from. The July 4th Fireworks in Bend is always one of Oregon’s biggest and brightest fireworks shows and is sure to wow your family.

Locals tend to head on over to Providence Park or Ponderosa Park to view the fireworks. You can enjoy amenities at these parks, including playgrounds for the kids, restrooms, and plenty of grassy lawns on which to lay out with a blanket. The July 4th Fireworks will start promptly at 10:00 PM.
