White Salmon Parade + Concert
The Mt. Adams Chamber of Commerce is hosting the Fourth of July Parade through downtown, followed by a free concert in Rheingarten Park, located at the intersection of Washington and Main Streets from 1-4 p.m. The parade begins on Grandview to Jewett to Main Street, where it will end at the park. The concert begins at 2 p.m. There will be prizes awarded for the most patriotic entries. Everyone is welcome.
“It’s time to shine up your wheels, dust off your walking shoes, dress up your dog or decorate your bike,” said a chamber press release. “Join us for this small-town celebration of the Fourth of July. Beginning with a parade led by Grand Marshall Carol DeLay starting at 1 p.m., this perfect afternoon festival creates an ideal mid-summer day’s trip to the north shore of the Columbia River Gorge.”
The parade will feature the 204th Army Marching Band from Vancouver. Local group Harmony of the Gorge will be singing in the parade and also at the park, where there will be VIP tented seating for military veterans and their guest. Veterans are additionally invited to ride in the parade. If you need a vehicle/driver, the chamber will coordinate and drop you off at the park; call by July 1.
