>> Difficult decision to open Sunday prompts outpouring of support for Oregon District shooting victims
Nearly 30 outdoor stations will be staffed by volunteers and stocked with 99 craft beers for sampling, organizers said. Breweries and beer distributors will be on hand to share information about their beers. There will be a silent auction, live music and food trucks. At dusk, River Fire Rings, created and sponsored by French Oil Mill Machinery Company, will be ceremonially lighted with torches to burn throughout the rest of the evening, organizers said.
