There's no shortage of events — family-friendly and adult-friendly — in Central Oregon. Read on for a taste of what lies ahead — and check out the Source calendar for a full list of events.
While there's no shortage of events between now and Halloween, here are a few that we're looking forward to.
Fright Night Halloween Costume PartyAVID throws one of the best Halloween shindigs of the season — and it’s free! Portland’s DJ Wicked will be spinning tunes, who has opened for Wu-Tang Clan, Eminem and Outkast. Dress in your best costumes for the photo booth (you know, pics or it didn’t happen). If you work up an appetite while dancing the night away, the Parilla Grill Taco Truck will be there serving delicious tacos to wash down with specialty AVID ciders.
