    Corbett’s Fourth of July celebration to bring parade, pancakes, fireworks

    By Christopher Keizur,


    There is no better place to celebrate Independence Day in East Multnomah County than taking a jaunt into the Columbia River Gorge, with a pancakes, a parade and fireworks.

    The Corbett Hometown Fourth of July outing fills the holiday with family-friendly fun Thursday, July 4. Most of the fun is free to attend, and parking can be found on sideroads, at the school, and at the softball field across from the water district.

    Here is the schedule for the 2024 event:

    Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser: A feast to power you through the action-packed day. The main entrée is those flapjacks, best enjoyed with a heaping pour of syrup. The food is served 7-9:30 a.m. at the Corbett Grade School multipurpose building, 36115 E. Historic Columbia River Highway. Entry is $10, with veterans and kids under 5 free.

    Jeff Lucas Memorial Parade: The crown jewel of the outing, with plenty of candy for kids to chase down along the parade route. The parade, which begins at 10 a.m., is filled with floats, horses, big rigs, motorcycles, special guests, bands and more. One of the highlights will be seeing the Corbett girls basketball state championships. This year the staging will be at the new Corbett Middle School, along Woodard Road.

    Classic Car Cruise-In: The perfect follow-up to the parade, the Historic Highway will be filled with classic cars. They will cruise the same route at noon, eventually ending up at the Corbett Grade School parking lot.

    Corbett Fun Fest: The festivities only ramp up as the afternoon continues. From noon to 9 p.m. there will be an outdoor party across Corbett, with food, a dunk tank, drinks, games and more. The parade entry winners will be announced, as will the raffle winners. At 5:30 p.m. Got Your Six will perform a live show — the all-veteran group is back after a successful 2023 show. The evening will end at 10 p.m. with the “best fireworks show this side of the Sandy river”
