PANCAKE BREAKFAST

Kick off a tasty July 4 a little early this year. The annual VFW Pancake Breakfast gets rolling on July 3. A full pancake breakfast will be available Wednesday, July 3, at 10 p.m. and continue through the night until noon on July 4.

The feast is located at Long Park (next to the fire station).

The breakfast includes all-you-can-eat pancakes, eggs cooked to order, ham, coffee, milk and juice.

Cost is $8 for adults, $6 for children.

CHICKEN FRY

The annual St. James BBQ Chicken event (301 Frances St.) has returned for the 61st edition.

This year's pit crew will begin its preparations at 5 a.m. on July 4, and things will kick off at 10 a.m. sharp and go until 3 p.m.

A chicken half to go will go for $7, while a half chicken dinner (which includes a baked potato, coleslaw, dinner roll, and desert) will be $12. A quarter of a chicken with a dinner (complete with the same side dishes) will cost $8.

FREEDOM RUN

The Freedom 5K is back on July 4, with the start going off just before the Giant Street Parade.

The cost is $30 plus a small processing fee to pre-register online, or $35 to register the day of the race. There is a family discount of $5 off per person for groups of three or more people who register together and live in the same household.

The race course will begin at the high school track and football field, and a half mile into it the racers will follow the parade route in its entirety before returning to the high school football field.

Register for the run online here.

GIANT STREET PARADE

The Molalla Giant Street Parade is back and ready to roll. As usual this year's parade features a variety of floats, bands, trucks, horse groups, all ages of walkers—in and out of costumes, dancers, vintage cars, tractors and even a portable toilet on wheels that pops wheelies.

The streets will close at 9 a.m. on Thursday, July 4, with the parade beginning at 9:30 a.m., shortly after the last runner leaves the start of the Freedom 5K.
