Determined to try new July 4th weekend events we attended the Hoe Down in Cow Town today in Cloverdale. This parade wound through town with a mix of local fare including a colony of bunnies and the infamous Smokey the Bear. The parade is thought to be unique in the country as it is lead by a cow; this year a Holstein named Clover accompanied by Tillamook County Dairy Princess Ambassador, Kristen Kaste. Take a look at our exclusive photos from this year’s event.

After a few years off famous pasta dinners are back
We visited the Historic Anchor Inn this evening for a great meal of salad, clam chowder, French bread and Kip Ward’s famous spaghetti. The Inn offers these delicious dinners as well as an equally delicious breakfast to guests staying at the Inn. Local residents have been welcome for a modest donation to the chief.
In talking to Kip we learned that the Inn will once again operate the famous dining room as a full scale restaurant beginning April 1st. The restaurant will specialize in a wide variety of pasta dishes. If you haven’t been down to the Anchor you really should visit and enjoy one of these dinners. While dining you can enjoy all the unusual collectibles which adorn every corner of the dining room. The Historic Anchor Inn supports many local causes with special dinners so keep an eye on Oregon Coast Today to learn about these events. Give it a try, you’ll love it.
