Stayton Lions Club

4th of July Celebration

Stayton, OR - In 1973 the Stayton Lions Club organized the community's first 4th of July Celebration & Fireworks Show sponsored by local businesses. In 1983 the Stayton Roadrunners Club organized the first 4th of July fun run. The "Run for Sight" supported the Stayton Lions Club sight and hearing program for many years before switching to other benefits, and currently being organized by the Boys Scouts. In the '80s there were several kiddie parades from the elementary school sponsored by the Kiwanis club.

In 1991 Lions Club members organized the first of the current Stayton Grand Parade to add to the Independence Day festivities. Others have also been involved, including the Moose Lodge who helped direct the parade for 10 years. The Stayton Lions Club is honored to continue organizing these community traditions through the continued sponsorship support of local businesses.


1973-2023... We are honored and excited to be planning the 50th Anniversary Stayton Lions Club 4th of July Celebration and Fireworks Show!
