4th of July in Central Oregon/Sunriver
If you are looking for a special way to celebrate July 4th, join the community of Bend for the annual Pet Parade and Old Fashioned July 4th Celebration. The day begins with the Sunrise Lions Club Pancake Breakfast from 8am - Noon, adults eat for $5 and kids eat for $3; then get your heart pumping with the Spark Your Heart 5K walk or run at 8:30 am at Troy Field, then at 9:30, line up to participate in Bend's most historical event, the Pet Parade, where children of all ages (1-100) bring their special leashed pet ( dogs - large & small, llamas, lizards, goats, and lots of stuffed animals - no rabbits or cats please) and parade through downtown Bend. No registration necessary. Parade begins at 10am. Later, after the parade, enjoy unique craft and food booths, old fashioned games, (like three legged races), watermelon eating and water balloon contests as well as wonderful live entertainment from 11am - 4pm. The day's celebration wraps up when the Bend Bulletin presents the annual Bend Community Fireworks Show at Pilot Butte State Park (visible from most areas of Bend), beginning at 10pm.
