The Fourth of July is America’s annual birthday party that unites people across the nation in celebrations that include parades, barbecues and fireworks. The Dalles Chronicle staff would like to add to the festivities this year with a few fun and/or interesting facts about America’s early history and the the founding fathers who set up the greatest experiment in governance by the people that the world has ever known:
Dan Brophy, a decorated Marine combat veteran and The Dalles outpost leader for Pointman Ministries, will take the role of grand marshal for the local Fourth of July parade. “I think the Fourth is a time for us to appreciate America, and celebrate in an appropriate way the freedom we have as a nation,” Brophy said of serving as “pointman” for the third annual Independence Day celebration.
Parade, fireworks and fountain dedication planned for holiday
A bronze fountain at Lewis and Clark Festival Park downtown The Dalles will be dedicated at noon July 4, immediately following the Fourth of July parade downtown. The fountain depicts three members of the Corps of Discovery expedition battling high winds as they attempt to launch a dugout canoe into the Columbia River in 1805. The fountain is the work of Jeff Stewart, a local artist living near Dufur.
