The keynote events of the annual Big Valley Days celebtation are the parade and the Logging Contest. The parades have been getting smaller for the past few years, but was still enjoyed by everyone.
This year the parade was taken down Main Street in Adin and it
started as soon as the Highway Patrol closed down Hwy 299 for the
duration. Lennie Eades, a very long time resident of Big Valley was the
announcer and moderator. Lading the parade was the local V.F.W. then
Every year, the Big Valley Lions Club presents a "Lion of the Year" and a "Citizen of the Year" award, and those chosen not only get a nice dinner from the Lions, but get to present themselves to their neighbors in the parade.
