PATEROS – The temperature may have been rising but nobody seemed to notice during a weekend of cool events in Memorial Park and city-wide that had something for just about everyone from Friday, through Sunday, June 23-25. If the near three-dozen garage sales scattered from Pryor Drive to Alta Lake wasn’t enough to keep a body busy, a string of attractions from a beer garden to bike rally, live music to a long boat and antiques to archeology were available to fill the schedule.
