Council ~ Clean Air, Clean Water, Clean Fun

Summer is in full swing and it is time to think about the Annual 4th of July celebration and Porcupine Race. Spending the 4th of July celebrating in Council is a great way to spend the day celebrating with family and friends. We have a full day of events happening beginning with the annual breakfast with the flag raising happening around 8:00 am. There will be vendors of all types in the park, the annual quilt show will and the parade line up will all begin at 10:00 am.The parade will begin at 11:00 am. Lineup is at the Council Visitor Center. Once the parade is over everyone will head down to the Council Elementary School for the Calcutta and annual porcupine race. The Council Seniors will be selling sandwiches and pie beginning right after the parade in the Senior Center. As soon as the porcupine race is finished the logging show will begin next to the city park. From 3 to 5 there will be kids games, miniature donkey cart rides. A water slide and a dunk tank will be all day events to help you cool off.
