Troutdale families create Liberty Lane to celebrate holiday with lights and decorations

With so many events being postponed this summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a trio of Troutdale neighbors knew they had to create something special for 4th of July.

So Rick and Linda Paz, Kathy and Frank Eaton, and Paulette Kuiper all combined to transform their small Troutdale neighborhood with lights and decorations — creating Liberty Lane to celebrate the holiday.

"There is so much Red, White and Blue — we knew people needed something more this year," said Linda Paz. "It's the most lit thing in East County."

Located at 1722 S.W. Hensley Road, it's an impressive setup and free to visit and explore. There are countless lights, festive decorations, flags, and live music. The lights are on from 8:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. — but are best experienced after dusk around 9:30 p.m. They will remain in place through July 5.
