La De Da – It’s Fourth of July!
A not-to-be-missed tradition for many folk, the July 4th festivities of Yachats is a crowd pleaser you have to experience for yourself! Yachats locals and visitors throw themselves wholeheartedly into the fun, day-long activities, and this year marks the 21st anniversary of the indescribably wacky Yachats La De Da Parade!
Our little village by the sea comes alive in the early morning hours in preparation for spirited entertainment, scrumptious food, live music, games, and one of the best fireworks shows on the Oregon Coast!
