  • Rogue River's Rooster Crow Celebration is expected to set off a racket this weekend as the 59th annual event runs Friday through Sunday, with the big competition scheduled for Saturday afternoon.
    The main event, the Rooster Crow contest, begins at 2:30 p.m. (2 p.m. if you want to hear some humans crow). The feathered crowers will try to beat the competition's all-time record set 34 years ago by White Lightning of 112 crows in 30 minutes. Only two other roosters have ever cracked the century mark.
    This year's Rooster Crow is part of Rogue River's centennial celebration. Parade grand marshals will be the Neathamer pioneer family.
    The event begins with a kickoff dinner from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Friday (cost is $6 per person) and live music from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. by the Afterburners at the Woodville Museum bandstand, Oak and First streets.
    Saturday will start with a fun run and walk at 8 a.m. The Rooster Crow Parade will begin at 10 a.m., and the crowing events begin at 2 p.m.
    Here are some of the main events planned for the weekend:
