As spring turns to summer our dreams turn to the vacations we’ve taken over the years and the ones we’ve always regretted not taking. We’re not going to live forever, and if Sunriver was the vacation you’ve never taken but you’re worried you just don’t have enough time off in your future, why not consider an extended weekend over Independence Day? Unrealized dreams deserve to be made real, and because our nation’s birthday falls on a Thursday, it’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate in beautiful Sunriver! And because we do want you to have the getaway of your dreams, this guide to the fun activities and exciting events going on will ensure that you get to experience it all when you visit Sunriver for 4th of July!
Start Your Holiday the Right Way
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and even if you’re not a fan of the egg, you still need to eat something! To get the celebratory mood started early, we’re suggesting a stop at the Hot Lava Baking Company inside the Village at Sunriver! Offering decadent donuts, sweetly spicy cinnamon rolls, and a host of other pastries guaranteed to give you a sugar high, it’s the perfect start to a perfect day in Sunriver!
Sunriver 4th of July Festival, The Village at Sunriver
After finishing your sweet treat at the Hot Lava Baking Company, you’re already in position to join the party! The Sunriver 4th of July Festival starts at 10:30 AM and offers a day filled with fun games, live entertainment and delicious food! Those who have a competitive side can join the watermelon eating contest; some of our residents have been competing in this delicious contest for years, so if your appetite is on the smaller side, you may want to start practicing in advance! Ending at 4:30 PM, you have enough time to grab a quick dinner at the Basecamp Grill and then head over to Bend for the fireworks show that begins at 10 PM at the top of Pilot Butte!
Not Ready for Bed Yet?
After a long day of fun and festivities you’re probably tired, but that doesn’t mean you are ready for bed—even if you are heading back to your Sunriver Pines vacation escape! The most beautiful time of the day in the summer is after the sun sets and the moon is perched high in the sky. Why not pour yourself a cold one and sit out on the porch listening to the noises of the night as you hold hands with your sweetie? Our homes are designed to make your vacation a dream come true.
