Brownsville is celebrating today! “Stand By Me” turns 30 – “The anniversary event is featuring a 5K walk/run as a memorial to Ray Brower, interviews with some of the cast & crew (including the train engineer from the trestle scene), a vintage car cruise in and vintage trailer open house, an authentic sock hop in the historic Brownsville gym, an amateur blueberry pie eating contest, a Geocache Challenge, a replica of the tree house and guided walking tours. Listen and dance to Johnny Limbo & the Lugnuts that evening and, of course, watch the movie in the park at dusk. Best Oregon Tours is offering Free Park & Ride shuttle service from two parking locations on Highway 228. Sponsored by the Brownsville Chamber of Commerce, the Stand by Me 30th Anniversary is expected to draw thousands of fans from all around the world to the small, mid-valley.”
