The Port of Camas-Washougal is bringing the community to the riverside for a fabulous 4th of July celebration in Marina Park, happening from 7 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. on Monday, July 4. There will be live music, food, and family-friendly fun on the beautiful banks of the Columbia River.
Arrive early to park on the future site of the Washougal Waterfront Development, or choose the overflow lot on 2nd St., near the Best Western. Grab a hay ride on a tractor-pulled trailers and ride to Marina Park in style. The Children’s Patriotic Bike Parade starts at 4 p.m., with kids’ games and activities continuing until 5:30 p.m. Food available to purchase includes cotton candy, flavored popcorn, snow cones, tacos, elephant ears, sandwiches, burgers, ice cream and milkshakes, teriyaki bowls, hot dogs, gyros, and a beer garden. At 6 p.m., an evening of music begins with the Country-Rock-and-Blues sounds of the Tracy Fordice Band, followed by 5 Guys Named Moe, an 11-piece horn-driven show band with dynamic vocals. At 10 p.m., the City of Washougal will launch its wow-inducing fireworks show, which grows more spectacular every year.
There will be food vendors, face painting, balloon animals, games, and more. For more details, or to learn more about the Port of Camas-Washougal, visit www.portcw.com.
