Straight River Days Fill Medford with Activities
Watch a parade, go garage sale hopping, or play video games in the just-added mobile gaming theater at Medford's Straight River Days June 16-18. Grab a bit to eat at a food stand, search for the medallion, and maybe catch a prize from the Medford Muni Rooftop Toss, hosted by Power 96 radio.
Thursday's schedule includes opening ceremonies at the Veteran's Memorial and the crowning of Miss Medford, plus the start of the medallion search. See a full schedule of events at www.straightriverdays.com.
Citywide garage sales are on Friday. Get a map at The Muni, Casey's, or Anhorn's. The parade lines up at the school at 5:30 pm and starts at 7 pm. Power 96 radio will be on hand for remote broadcasts from 5 to 7 pm. Party in the Park with Uncle Chunk after the parade. Food stands will be open as well.
