PHOTO GALLERY: Oregon Trail Days brings festivities all over town

The 4th of July festivities didn't stop at the arena – Oregon Trail Days brought four day of vendors, shows, and one all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast to Vale. Friday and Saturday saw rodeo fans ending the night with Mal's Diner's Take it to the Street Dance, while vendors, quilts, and car shows filled their afternoons.

The Vale Lions Club also hosted their annual 4th of July pancake breakfast at Wadleigh Park on Monday morning, attracting a crowd that spilled out of the picnic area in hopes of filling up on pancakes, sausages, and more before the night's big rodeo.

While there was no shortage of pancakes at the all-you-can-eat Lions 4th of July Breakfast at Wadleigh Park, tubs of whipped butter were occasionally replenished. (The Enterprise/CYNTHIA LIU)
