Gov. Ted Kulongoski will be in Klamath Falls for a two-day visit starting Wednesday for a local celebration of the release of the Oregon quarter featuring Crater Lake and the dedication of the Crater Lake Parkway.
Kulongoski will be at Crater Lake National Park Wednesday for a private tour in the morning and will do a public signing of a proclamation of the Oregon quarter at 4 p.m. at Phantom Ship Overlook.
This will be the second quarter launch party – an earlier one was held in Portland in June.
The governor will be in Klamath Falls 11 a.m. Thursday for a celebration and dedication of the Crater Lake Parkway, formerly called the Alameda Bypass, and quarter at Veterans Park.
Rep. Greg Walden, who is in Klamath County Thursday and Friday, will also speak at the event.
That event is open to the public and balloons and mock wooden quarters will be given to children. Ice cream will be given out to everyone.
He’ll leave Thursday afternoon to attend a fund-raiser for a local foodbank in Medford. Kulongoski was last in Klamath County on business in July to pitch his new education plan.
