WALLOWA, OR – 4th of July — The sun was shining with temperatures pleasantly in the low 80s for the annual 4th of July Parade in Wallowa. Not since before COVID have so many local folks and visitors attended the parade and following festivities. The sidewalks were filled with smiling adults and laughing children waiting for their share of candy during the parade.
Vendors set up on Pine Street offered a variety of items, including homemade goods. The food selection of homemade corn dogs, burgers, smoked meats, snow cones combined with covered seating and live music in the fire hall completed a day that will be remembered for a long time.
