Started in 1937, the Silverton Red Sox baseball team was mostly made up of local men who worked at the Silver Falls Timber Co. Team manager was the mill owner Bill McGinnis. A farm team for the Boston Red Sox, players earned $25 a game. Major league player Johnny Pesky played one summer in Silverton. The last game played was 1954.
A Silverton tradition for more than 80 years, the Silverton Pet Parade - always the third Saturday in May - celebrates the town's winged, tailed, scaled and four legged friends. Children, adults and pets stroll through downtown as spectators cheer them on.
