    I am not sure why Grants Pass is not considered Southern Oregon. We wonderful things happening here this weekend. Many people call us the unloved stepchild in Medford with the TV channels.

      We’re not sure what you mean, since we mention Grants Pass in this article.

      “The Grants Pass Christmas Parade and tree lighting is also November 30.”

        It is mentioned in the article.. but more as an afterthought.. kind of like.. Oh yeah and they have something happening too.

        I live in Central Point not Grants Pass, but I see exactly what Tanya is talking about. I’m not sure that it’s all intentional. but it happens none the less.
