Fourth of July morning run set

This Fourth of July morning lace up your walking or running shoes to join in the annual Fun Run. Both the 2½-mile and 5-mile courses loop through the scenic Weaver Bally trails behind Trinity High School. Walkers and runners of all ages are invited to join; you will be done in plenty of time for the parade.

Pre-register at Main Street Shoes, 521 Main St., Weaverville. Help us streamline the race start time by swinging by Main Street Shoes during their business hours, and pick up your race number, sign your waiver and order a T-shirt, too.

The event is rain or shine, at 8 a.m., and starts and finishes at the Trinity High School track. Race-day registration begins at 7:15 a.m. at the THS track. Awards are given to the overall winners and age-group winners of each race. All proceeds benefit Trinity High School athletics.

Organizers thank you for supporting our local student-athletes.

‘Come Run with the Pack’ Saturday

This event is not for just the alumni living here and/or alumni visiting Weaverville for the 4th of July celebration, it is for the community. If you want to make contact with someone that was (or was not) from your class; see a favorite teacher; visit an old friend or their parents, this is the place to be!

This annual event has become an important part of the 4th of July celebration. Everyone is welcome and encouraged by organizers to attend — you will see classmates, friends, THS teachers and parents. Wear your red and white as we again put our hearts together.

If you have any THS memorabilia or pictures, please bring them along to share. THS Alumni, THS Booster Club, and THS Scholarship Foundation will have information available regarding their organizations. Below is an order of events.

Trinity County Animal shelter fireworks preparation reminder

The Trinity County Animal Shelter would like to remind everyone that the 4th of July is fast approaching. Shelter workers hope that everyone has a good time and enjoys the celebration, but remember that the loud noises that come with people celebrations can be less of a good time for the animals in your life.

The Weaverville Chamber of Commerce’s annual fireworks show is set for 10 p.m. Friday, July 5, but other impromptu and dangerous fireworks parties often occur in neighborhoods throughout the county.

Make sure that your dogs are securely contained inside prior to fireworks or other loud events. Consider leaving your radio or television on to help block out the noises.  

Across the country animal shelters are inundated with lost and scared dogs following the Fourth of July and Trinity County is no exception.  Please make sure that your pet has identification, such as a county license.

If your pet does go missing, check social media or come to the shelter during business hours to look for them. The shelter will be closed to the public on July 4 so that our staff can celebrate with their families.
