Region celebrates July 4

THOMAS JEFFERSON and a few of the other founding fathers declared that Independence Day on July 4 should be celebrated nationwide by fireworks. While The Dalles doesn’t have its own official fireworks celebration (yet, see page A1), Dallesport does provide a pretty spectacular display of impromptu fireworks thanks to its more lenient fireworks laws. However, several nearby towns celebrate with day and evening activities, including Rufus, with a parade at 3:30 p.m. and activities at the community center leading up to fireworks, Mill A with a parade and fireman’s picnic starting at Jessup Road and Cook-Underwood Road, and a day-long celebration with a parade at 10 a.m., Jackson park festivities from 10 to 3 p.m., and fireworks starting at 10 p.m.
