July Fourth forecast: Lots of family fun
A full day of events is planned for Carnation's 4th of July festival.
The Carnation Chamber of Commerce-sponsored event begins with a 5K run/walk (Run for the Pies) through the picturesque rural area, followed by a pancake breakfast.
The Hot Rods & Harleys show will run all day at the Bank of America lot. Those who don't have an entrant may vote for the People's Choice award.
Other activities include the parade, day-long music, street vendors, airplane rides over the Valley and fireworks at dusk.
The Sno-Valley Seniors will be offering an evening spaghetti feed on July 3, and strawberry shortcake July 4 at the center.
The popular Tolt River Inner Tube Race begins at 2 p.m., with awards given out for the fastest tubers (couch potatoes need not apply).
Starting at 8:30 p.m. at Tolt Field, there will be live music until the fireworks display at dusk.
