June 21st, 2019

The Shoreline Inn's excitement for the 4th of July has brought whales, otters, and pods of dolphins by! They're checking out the town as we get ready for on our most exciting day of the year. Businesses are festively decorating for our upcoming celebration, while planning all the family-friendly activities that will be happening throughout the day. We’ve got the information you need to know about making this your best 4th of July yet!

Sand Sculpture Competition

If you're looking for a creative way to spend your morning, come down to the beach and participate in our Sand Sculpture Competition! The contest is from 5 a.m to 8 a.m., and all ages and abilities are welcome. Parking is allowed in front of the Veteran's Hall until 8 a.m. You might win a trophy!

From here, make sure to check out the Front Street Faire for mid-day snacks and your 4th of July souvenirs!

Cayucos Town Parade

Let the fun continue! Are you looking to get a great view of the parade on Ocean Avenue? You can set up your chairs after 6 p.m. on July 3rd.

We would like to thank the Cayucos Lion's Club for putting on this great event! The parade begins at 10 a.m. and runs until 12 p.m. You'll see a variety of entertainment including floats, classic cars, and live music! We recommend getting here by 8 a.m. to get parking in designated parking areas throughout Cayucos. Avoid freeway entrances and bridges; you will be citied.

Lion's Club BBQ & Lioness' Club Bingo and Pull Tabs

If you start to smell something mouthwatering around 11 a.m. until 1p.m, its the Lion's Club BBQ. You'll find BBQ tri-tip, chicken and an assortment of sides at the foot of the pier. It's a great place to re-charge with a tasty lunch before our Lioness Club sponsored Bingo! Come and play to be a lucky winner from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Try your hand at multiple games of Bingo and pull tabs; daubers are available for purchase.

Fireworks at the Cayucos Pier

The best way to end your 4th of July is with the stunning fireworks show off the Cayucos Pier! The Cayucos Chamber of Commerce works rigorously putting on fundraisers for this event. No alcohol, fires, or fireworks are allowed on the beach, so it's a great place for families to come and watch. Make sure to bring a blanket, chairs, and a warm jacket to enjoy the show! The fireworks show starts around 9 p.m. and lasts about 30 minutes.

If you're feeling hungry after an eventful day, wake up and head to the Lioness Pancake Breakfast at the Veteran's Hall tent from 8 a.m to 11a.m.
