Central Point Chamber Freedom Festival 2018

The Fourth of July is more than a parade or festival. It’s a gathering of people celebrating our independence through a variety of activities. The day began with a pancake breakfast hosted by the Boy Scouts Crater Lake Council, followed by a 5 k and fun run sponsored by the City of Central Point Parks and Recreation Dept., Anytime Fitness, and Grange Co Op. Everyone enjoyed the pre-parade activities sponsored by Bobbio’s Pizza! The Festival in Pfaff Park included music by Frankie Hernandez, free kids play zone sponsored by People’s Bank, a beer garden brought to you by The Point Pub and Grill and Walkabout Brewing, and community pie eating contest, gunny sack races, face painting and a water-balloon toss competition, all the while food and artisan vendors adorned the park.
