Riding toward the Fourth

Cassady Freedom, 7, takes a ride on a merry-go-round motorcycle, one of the rides in the Rainier Amusements Carnival downtown The Dalles on First Street Saturday evening. Fourth of July events Thursday include “Fourth of July in the Park” from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., sponsored by Point Man Ministries, with free hot dogs and music in the covered picnic shelter at Sorosis Park. That night, at 10:10 p.m., the Fort Dalles Fourth fireworks display will light up the night sky, set off from a barge on the Columbia River offshore from the Lewis and Clark Festival Park at First and Union streets.
