On April 24, 2019, the Klamath County Commissioners approved a tourism grant application submitted by the City of Malin in the amount of $5,333.
These grant funds will contribute to fulfilling budgetary needs for the “Malin Days” event that the City of Malin is helping to organize. This will ensure effective marketing and operational success for what is being described as a large, family-friendly event that brings together local and regional vendors, live music, entertainment, cultural groups, and outdoor recreation activities.
Historically, this event has drawn thousands of people from Oregon, California, Washington, and Idaho, and this year should prove to be no exception. As Malin celebrates its 110-year anniversary as a city and Malin Park celebrates its 75-year anniversary as Oregon’s first ever park district, there are a series of events scheduled for July 3-7.
Events will commence July 3rd with the Malin Royal Firecrackers Pageant, hosted by the Malin Community Service Club. The Malin Royal Firecrackers is a program developed to instill within our elementary-aged youth, the idea to give back to the community through community service projects. This is their 2nd year of being celebrated as a group who serves the community.
July 4th kicks off with a merchant breakfast, the swap meet, parade, 26th Annual Show-n-Shine Car Show, raffle, live music in the park and a dynamic firework show at dusk.
July 5th begins with Historical/Ag Tours, a matinee movie at the Broadway Theater, the museum will be open from 4-8pm, and Downtown Cruise Night and Street Dance/Concert in the Park with the Kurt Van Meter Band from 6-10pm.
July 6th events start with the 1st Annual Disc-Golf Tournament, Historical/Ag Tours, Free Lunch at Noon, talent show, All-Class Reunion, Czech music, Beer Garden, and fun games for the kids. Celebration events will come to close July 7th with a community breakfast at Malin Country Diner and a joint-church service in the park.
The City of Malin has already begun preparations for the event, working with local vendors and securing entertainment acts. A collaborative effort between the City of Malin, Malin Park, Rural Klamath Connects and Discover Klamath for marketing is underway. Details regarding this event can be found on the City of Malin’s website at www.cityofmalin.org or by calling 541-723-2021.
