A big street dance in the evening
is also being planned by the cele
bration committee. A midnight mat
inee at the Liberty Theatre will close
the days’ activities.
A mammoth fireworks display at
night will be a big feature. This
will furnish entertainment for at

in Clackamas county.

The old band stand on the corner
