July 4th parade salutes farms

June 2022 Posted in Community, Events & Holidays

Mt. Angel is set for an Independence Day of fun, farming and fireworks.

The annual July 4 parade, sponsored by the Mt. Angel Chamber of Commerce, has a theme of “Heart of Farm Country” as the community honors the bountiful nearby farms full of hops, hazelnuts, berries, flowers, vegetables, wine grapes and more.

The 11 a.m. Monday parade begins at Kennedy High School on East Marquam, winds its way through neighborhoods down Birch to Taylor to Garfield, finishing at the Weingarten.

Parade watchers can observe anywhere along the route  or join the group downtown, where master of ceremonies Norm Zollner will be announcing the parade entries and float winners. Downtown businesses will be open.

The day will end on the athletic fields between the middle school and the high school. The Marion County Citizens Band will play beginning at 8:30 p.m., with the fireworks, sponsored by Roth’s Fresh Markets, set to begin lighting up the sky at 10 p.m. Mount Angel’s Knights of Columbus chapter will once again be selling sausages, ice cream and strawberries at the concession stand.
