Full Sail hosts street party
This year, the employee-owners at Full Sail have a lot to celebrate: 15 years of brewing, three years of employee-ownership and the return of the Gorge Games to Hood River.
Full Sail wants to share the celebration by kicking off the Gorge Games with its fourth annual Street Party this Saturday.
The reggae rhythms of Shamir start the evening’s festivities at 7 p.m., with Portland-based Oso rocking the brewery until midnight with their high-energy electic funk. Admission is free and all ages are welcome.
Saloon hosts kite event
This Saturday, the River City Saloon will be hosting an AWAKE kiteboarding party with the sounds of Area 54 thumping the club. The Saturday night dance party follows up two nights of live music. On Thursday, Flowmotion returns to Hood River. Friday has the Invisible Doctors slated to groove at the Saloon. All shows begin at 9:30 p.m. and there will be a cover.
