Springfield, Creswell to put best foot Fourth next week

CHRONICLE ARCHIVE PHOTOS Above, at top, the annual fly-over in Creswell kicks off the start of the Fourth of July parade. Above, at bottom, spectators take in the spectacular sight of fireworks over the river from Springfield’s Hayden Railroad Bridge.

Between Springfield and Creswell Fourth of July celebrations, the southern Willamette Valley in one week will transform into a patriotic paradise.

Springfield’s 19th annual Light of Liberty Celebration will pack Island Park as part of a fundraiser for Project SHARE, which benefits about 300 low-income Springfield residents who need assistance paying their electricity bills. 

Last year, the Fourth celebration brought in over $45,000 for the project, which helped 1,162 residents, according to Meredith Clark, community relations for Springfield Utility Board — the organizing company of the event. Since the start of the year, Project SHARE has helped 825 customers. 

Tickets are $10, either online or cash at the gate located at 200 W. B St., and children under 5 get in for free. Gates open at 4 p.m. and all activities are free with admission. The event features live music, food trucks, vendors, a kids’ play area, and the grand finale: fireworks.
