Summer's winding down, but one Medford church isn't willing to give it up just yet: It plans a public beach party today at Medford's Bear Creek Park.

Summer's winding down, but one Medford church isn't willing to give it up just yet: It plans a public beach party today at Medford's Bear Creek Park.

The First United Methodist Church of Medford's party is from 9 a.m. to noon at the park amphitheater at Highland Drive and Siskiyou Boulevard. It's free.

Bubble-blowing, an "underwater relay race", music, island-style dancing, entertainment, games and food are planned.
