It’s our family tradition to head out to Corbett, Oregon each year on the 4th of July. They kick off the morning with a long parade and the fun continues all day long with their annual Fun Fest and then an over the top fireworks show at night.
As you can see from the photos it’s a small town kind of parade. There are no fancy floats, just good ol fashion fun.
Each year we have a BBQ or two that we go to. This year was no different. We had our BBQ out at a favorite spot in Corbett. Corbett is a little town situated in the Scenic Comunia Gorge area where you will find Crown Point and multiple waterfalls.
This summer I’ve been working with Adam’s Peanut Butter and I used their peanut butter to create this White Chocolate Caramel Peanut Butter Bars recipe for 4th of July BBQ that will blow your socks off!
