Now that the out-of-doors is finally open, get in some daytime excursions before hitting the town. Three animal events occur eastwardly this weekend; Fishing Derby in Detroit, Lamb Fair in Scio and the Pet Parade in Silverton. For the literary-inclined, there’s a book signing by Salem celeb Kelly Williams Brown at the Grand Theater Friday, where she dollops up some tips from her book, “Adulting: How to Become A Grown-Up in 468 Easy(ish) Steps”. Sparkling under the lights, Kelly’s sure to delight.
After taking in some sheep herding, mosey over to experience The Oregon Valley Boys in their natural habitat – a turn of the century grange hall. They are throwing a fandango amidst the mighty oaks and silhouetted Eolas. Finish the night with the soothing tones of the Rich McCloud Band at Venti’s Taphouse. Here are the Salem Pipeline picks for the weekend.
