Cascade Locks’ Canal Fest fun for all
Volunteers Brian Anderson, of Akron, and Champagne Hausknecht, of Coventry, are shown above as they release the ducks at the starting line into the canal for the first of two races for prizes.
Volunteer Terry Brown, of Akron, was positioned at the end of the race, as shown below, to pull the winning duck, whose sponsor Casey Rogers won a ride on the Akron Children’s Hospital Air Bear helicopter.
The day also featured fun activities for children and adults. Schoolmates Gade Lanham, 6, and Luke Morber, 5, both of Firestone Park, enjoyed a train ride, as shown at right bottom.
Pictured at right top is Green resident Caleb Timms-Jones, 5, as he jumps in the bounce house located in the children’s area behind the Mustill Store.
