Rockin' Fourth planned

"America, You Rock!" is the theme for this year's Fourth of July community celebration at Sahalee Park in Madras.

Events get started at 6 a.m. with the Todd Beamer Memorial Run, followed by the Elk's Lodge breakfast from 7-10 a.m.

The Fourth of July Parade rolls at 11 a.m., coming down 10th Street to B Street, then around the park. Contact the chamber of commerce to preregister for the parade at 541-475-2350.

After the parade, stay at the park for lunch from a variety of food vendors, and an afternoon of live music, old-fashioned games, and more, sponsored by the Madras-Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce.

The Sparkler's spectacular fireworks display will end the day at dusk, around 10 p.m.
