Looking for weekend plans? We’ve got your weekend event rundown

JACKSON COUNTY, Ore— We’re expecting a beautiful weekend in Southern Oregon and what a better way to celebrate than to get outdoors and enjoy fun events?

If you’re looking to give back, there’s a benefit being held for 5-year-old Nathaniel Ohlsen. Last year, Nathaniel was battling a form of childhood cancer, Neuroblastoma. Now, he’s undergoing more treatment to make sure it doesn’t come back.

His family will be going between Oregon and New York for the next year to get this treatment.

“We don’t have any expectations, whatever comes in will help us,” Buck Curry, Nathaniel’s grandfather said.

Event details:

  • Old Moose Lodge, Gold Hill
  • 9713 Old Stage Rd, Gold Hill, OR 97525
  • Saturday, 2 P.M to 8 P.M.

If you’re looking to try a range of foods, that the battle of the food trucks is for you!

It’s the first year the Central Point Chamber of Commerce has put on this event. Roughly 20 food trucks will be coming together to compete and showcase their best foods.

  • Saturday, 11 A.M. to 3 P.M.
