The 25th annual Gleneden Beach Independence Day Parade will be celebrated this year on Thursday, July 4th at 1:00 pm. The Gleneden Beach community comes together each year to create a memorable 4th of July experience for everyone involved. Please join us in “Celebrating 25 Years of Fun!” and help us pay tribute to this year’s honorees:
* Honored Citizen: Lincoln City Police Department’s new K9 unit (Canine Police Officer Nix will walk in the parade!)
* Business of the Year: Chester’s Thriftway
* Honored Veterans: Veterans of the Korean War and World War II
Are you hungry? Start the day off with breakfast at the Gleneden Beach Community Club from 8:00 am to 11:00 am. For more details check out www.glenedencommunityclub.org.
Interested in local food, crafts and specialty items? Come to the parade early and enjoy the vendor fair, which runs from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm, in the Eden Hall parking lot and at various locations along the parade route.
Do you rock to the music? The Red Roof Café will host live music beginning at 11:00 am.
Need to entertain the kids? They will love the Kid Zone located at Blake’s Coastal Nursery!
Would you like to cash in? Do not miss this year’s 50/50 raffle! Half of the pot will go to the winner of the raffle; the other half goes to Lincoln City’s K9 unit. Now, that’s what I call a win-win!
