People from all over Southern Oregon and beyond come to Ashland for the 4th of July parade every year. Enthusiastic and colorful contingents of costumed marchers and floats range from the traditional to the outrageous, and everything in between. Virtually every local person, family, affinity group, organization and business turns out for the annual 4th of July parade in Ashland. Visitors and guest marching contingents are very welcome.
As pretty much all of you know, there are some serious forest fires happening in Colorado and Arizona and elsewhere right now.

Rough & Ready Creek is a 24,000 acre mostly roadless watershed adjacent to the Kalmiopsis Wilderness. Out of 1,400 Oregon watersheds, Rough & Ready Creek and the West Fork Illinois ranked number one for botanical diversity and rare plants. It is a candidate Wild & Scenic River and it is geologically and botanically unique. There is no other watershed quite like it anywhere else in the world.

4th of July Plans in Ashland will be our usual parade. Its not a usual parade, though, when many thousands pour into town and line the streets for this annual blow-out on J4.
Who should be connecting the dots? Should it be alternative
websites and conspiracy authors or the mainstream media and
intelligence services? We speculate that it is about time that everyone
engages in this sport because the narrow-minded approach is missing
too many of the dots, let along not connecting them.
