Butte Falls is a small town situated in the foot hills of the cascades, 45 minutes from Medford, Oregon.This old logging town is still very much alive in heart and sense of adventure. Within miles of town are lakes, a network of trails, beautiful waterfalls, and gorgeous forests. The town itself offers a well stocked store, a gas station, and great old-time cafes. Butte Falls is home to the Butte Falls School District and the community is very education oriented.
Every year the Town of Butte Falls puts together a Fourth of July Festival. The event is hosted by the Butte Falls Active Club Committee. The proceeds go directly back to the community oriented events to keep the community spirit alive.
This year is no exception. It will be a great year with local vendors, family game booths, live entertainment, excellent food, BINGO, and a bounce house! All this and more will be at the Butte Falls Park in down town Butte Falls, Oregon on July 4, 2016.
As the Vice President of the Butte Falls Active Club, I am putting together a fundraiser Fun Run that will coincide with the Butte Falls Fourth of July Festival. The 2016 Sasquatch 5K Fun Run event planning has gone well. Planning this type of fundraiser has it’s challenges but the local women here in Butte Falls know a thing or two about determination. What this community event has to offer is astounding. From a run through the forest to a outdoor BBQ and Bingo, there is something everyone in the family will enjoy. If you have never been, it is worth going to.
The run will begin at 8 am sharp at the Butte Falls Landing, located at 801 Laurel Ave, Butte Falls Oregon. The Sasquatch 5K meanders the outskirts of town down through the forest to the water falls, back up and through the charming town of Butte Falls, ending where it began. The Sasquatch 5K Fun Run is open to everyone and children 12 and under are free. Costumes are encouraged and rewarded and everyone will go home with a prize!
Free parking is available at the Landing for the day.
