Port of HR Limits Access To Some Areas For Fireworks Show

The Port of Hood River will be limiting access to several waterfront properties to allow for the Eyeopeners Lions Club fireworks display to take place.  The Spit will be closed from noon Wednesday to noon on Friday.  Access to the sandbar from the Event Site and the sandy area of Marina Beach will be closed at 7 p.m. on July 4, with kiteboard launching and landing from the Event Site grass and beach and Marina Beach prohibited.  Once Marina Park parking areas are full on the Fourth, closed signs will be posted at the entrance and additional vehicles will not be allowed in.  Parking will be free on the 4th at all Port-owned streets and Lot 1, but parking permits and day use passes are still required for Event Site parking.  Fireworks of any kind are prohibited on all Port properties, including the Marina and Waterfront areas.
