Fort Dalles Fourth Debuts

The first Fort Dalles Fourth Independence Day celebration will take place in Lewis and Clark Festival Park in The Dalles on Friday.  It will be the culmination of efforts by a local group to reestablish a Fourth of July celebration in The Dalles.  The centerpiece will be the big fireworks show at dusk to be fired from a barge in the Columbia River, and it will be visible from most locations in the community.  But there will be plenty of activity leading up to the fireworks, with a pancake breakfast at 7 a.m., the Rocket Run and Walk at 8 a.m., a parade at 10 a.m., and live music from noon until fireworks time with a family festival from noon to 5 p.m.  For more information, go to FortDallesFourth.com
