CHALLENGING: One of the competitors in last year's WE Rock competiton at Broken Boulder Ranch negotiates his way over a huge boulder on one of three courses at the site. The competition returns to Goldendale this weekend following a Friday parade and street dance.

It's party time again in Goldendale as the WE Rock, rock crawling series returns to the Broken Boulder Ranch, north of town at the intersection of Pipe Line and Orchard Heights roads. The competition is a two day event with gates open on Saturday at 9 a.m. But, the whole community can get into the feel of the event on Friday night when crawlers will show some of what they can do by running over one of the left over cars from the 4th of July Jaycees Demo Derby.

Entries to this year's rock crawl event will be welcomed to Goldendale with a Friday night parade that will start at 5:30 p.m. in front of Carquest on South Columbus and finish on 100 West Main Street near the Napa Auto Parts store. The parade route runs south on Columbus, east on Simcoe, north on Schuster, west on Collins, north on Columbus and finishes on West Main. The demonstration of the cars at work will be at the end of the parade route.

Expect portions of West Main to be closed on Friday night. A street dance will be held following the parade from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Parking for the competition on Saturday and Sunday is at the Broken Boulder Ranch on 290 Pipeline Road. Admission is $25 for a two-day pass for adults, or one day for $15. Ages 8-15 pay $5 and under eight is free. Food, drink and vendors will be on site and spectators have close access to the cars and drivers.
