Families can celebrate Father’s Day at Tie Days in Shady Cove on Saturday, June 19 from 10 a.m. to 6p.m. With artisan vendors spread throughout the city, two chain saw carvers, one at Chickadee’s and the other at Shady Kate’s Boutique, country and western music, food and more there is entertainment for everyone. An ugliest tie contest adds to the fun.
Artisan wares include handmade jewelry, furniture and tie dye. Dave Roberts will demonstrate how to tie fishing flies in front of where else but the Fishin’ Hole. “The Fly” will also be in that location painting whatever a customer wants on a vehicle. Last year one Shady Cove resident had a pair of antlers painted on his truck.
Dennis Ellingson will be at Books n More. He is the author of God’s Healing Herbs, The Painted Hills and The God
ly Grandparent. He will offer live herb plants.
Raffle tickets are $1 each for dinners for two at Madrone Kitchen and Wine Tavern, Rogue River Lodge, Miguel’s and a scenic guided rafting trip that includes food from the Picnic Basket Deli. There are also free meal coupons from Phil’s Frosty Freeze. For more information call 541-821-2120.
