The Fourth of July is all about fun: hamburgers, hot dogs, barbecue, and, of course, fireworks.

One again, thanks to a City of Fort Bragg grant of $5,000, the show will go on. This year it takes place Saturday, July 2, around 9 p.m. (just after dark) at the mouth of Noyo Harbor. There are good views near Todd Point (parking at Todd Point is $5 with funds to support next year’s show) and on the Noyo Bridge.

I’ve seen the show when fireworks are exploding overhead and from a neighborhood 6 miles south. From any vantage point, the fireworks show in Fort Bragg is a Fourth of July must. For a place to stay, check our lodging page.

But here’s another reason to visit: the 40th Annual World’s Largest Salmon BBQ, July 2, 11:00 am to 6:00 pm in Noyo Harbor, Fort Bragg. Tickets are $25 at the door or $20 at Harvest Market.
And there’s more:

The first-ever Salmon Film Festival, sponsored by the Salmon Restoration Association, the City of Fort Bragg, and the North Coast Brewing Company, takes place July 1st and 2nd in Ft. Bragg Town Hall.

The Salmon Film Festival is held in conjunction with the salmon barbecue, which a major fundraising event held by the Salmon Restoration Association to support local salmon education and conservation programs.
