Summer is in full swing and it is

way to spend the day celebrating

around 8:00 am. There will be
vendors of all types in the park,

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.
