Festivities in Lake Oswego will go on all day Tuesday to make sure there's not a dull moment on the Fourth of July. But before that, on Sunday, two events on the lake will kick off what the city is calling a Star Spangled Celebration.
Collection barrels for non-perishable food donations will be located at Millennium Plaza Park to benefit Oregon Food Bank.
From 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday at Lakewood Bay, the Malibu Wakeboard Competition and Exhibition and at 7:30 p.m. the Portland Water Ski Spectacular, both sponsored by the Lake Corp., may be viewed from Millennium Plaza Park and the Headlee Walkway.
