Proceeds will be used for the Community Flag Project — installation of a 90-foot flag pole and 1,800-square-foot American flag in the community.

Bike parade and Freeman Park family festival: The city of Woodland Parks and Recreation Commission, Historic Woodland Downtown Business Association and the Woodland Bike Campaign will host the annual Fourth of July Bike Parade & Celebration.

The Main Street Parade of Bikes will begin at 11 a.m. and will ride to Freeman Park where there will be music performed by Crawford & Perkes, fresh fruit provided by La Superior Mercado, food vendors, bounce houses, face painting and more.

Ken’s Bikes will be on hand to pump up bike tires and do free safety inspections. Valet bike parking will be available. To volunteer to help or for more information, contact Maria Contreras of the Woodland Bike Campaign at 530-753-1125 or
