REEDSPORT — As Reedsport's centennial carnival approaches, the Umpqua Discovery Center is preparing for its own celebratory events.
During the carnival, Saturday, Aug. 10, the Discovery Center will have free admission to their exhibits all day. Along with the regular attractions, a series of "very old" vintage cars will be on display out front. Then in the evening, the Discovery Center will host the Centennial's outdoor concert, with the oldies/rock & roll band Stillwater playing from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
The Discovery Center also recently expanded its oral history exhibit. They will now be able to show all of the histories, rather than circulating eight at a time and may be able to bring in more. There are also hoping to incorporate video to the exhibit.
