Out of Town 6/3-6/10 | Sound Stories & Interviews | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Goonies 30th Anniversary Celebration

The "truffle shuffle" never gets old, and neither do the Goonies. It is simply hard to beat a group of kids trying to save their homes from an impending golf course with a pirate treasure adventure thrown in. This 1985 classic is now 30 years old and where better to celebrate than in the towns were the story actually unfolded. Check out "Mikey's House" or see where the epic car chase by the docks took place with fellow Goonies lovers. Ah, there is nothing like the '80s. Check out the full schedule at coastexplorermagazine.com.

Milk Carton Boat Race

Why recycle when you can build a watercraft out of your used milk cartons? Yes, an actual watercraft that can keep a person (or two) afloat. Don't worry, with multiple categories for different age groups, there is no way a 5-year-old girl can beat you. There are also separate competitions for artistry and speed, with a special category for boats that are propelled by human power, but are not using the traditional paddling method. Still need a demo?

Women's World Cup – First U.S. Game

Sure, you can watch the Women's World Cup games taking place in Canada in the comfort of your own La-Z-Boy, but wouldn't it be more fun to watch the U.S. women take on Australia in "Soccer City USA"?
