Eagle Point events will be on Sunday, July 4th. This is one of several events put on by the Eagle Point Community Association each year.
The new kitchen at the Eagle Point Grange will get a real work out with breakfast served from 7-11 by Boy Scout Troop #5. Their menu will include pancakes, sausage, eggs, juice and coffee for $6. They are an experienced group, having just served breakfast to the Medford Cruise group.
Next on the list of events is the 5th annual Betty Marlia Fun Walk/Run. Last minute registration is at Bob Moore Park, in downtown Eagle Point, from 7-7:45 a.m. The one mile and 5km event begins at 8 a.m. There will be a number of prizes awarded to the racers who stick around just after the race and walk. For race information contact Bunny at 944-2446.
Main Street is always lined with booths, which open for the day at 9 a.m. This year the Eagle Point Women’s Association will have a massive, extremely long, very fun dragon for the children to crawl through. That will be available from 9 until 10:45 and after the parade at Campus Life, which is across the street from the library on Main St.
Parade judging is at 9:30 with the parade getting underway at 11 a.m. All of this begins in the parking lot at Eagle Point High School. For parade information or late registration contact Suzi at 541-324-0099.
There will be music and entertainment as well as vendors booths downtown until 4 p.m.
The Eagle Point High School stadium opens at 6 p.m. This year the concession stand will be operated by the Eagle Point Parks & Recreation to benefit the recreation programs. At 7 p.m. there will be a pre-fireworks show along with karaoke.
The fireworks will begin at dusk with the Lions skydiver parachute lottery at half-time.
Fireworks shells are sponsored by individuals and businesses each year and there are sponsorships still available. They start at $50 and go up from there. The amount you spend determines the size of shell. Each sponsor is asked to write something about his business and this is read by the public address announcer, giving you free publicity. Call Rick at 541-826-8889.
