· Hoola Hoop Contest
Now a part of the Molalla Chamber of Commerce, Molalla Second Friday was begun in 2010 as part of the Molalla Main Street program While the affiliation has changed, the purpose remains the same – to draw attention to the great shops and businesses downtown Molalla has to offer.
