The first item on my list of things to do this weekend probably won’t lead to any heat related maladies, because the wee hours of the morning are relatively cool.
The English Premier League starts regular season play early Saturday morning. For places to watch check out Wednesday’s post on the topic, and make sure to check the comments for additional suggestions.
At 11am head up to Hawthorne, between 20th and 50th, for the Hawthorne Day Street Fair. You’ll find all the typical street fair fare, including musical performances, business demonstrations, face painting, and art. Some highlights:
- The Dollar Scholar is giving away free hot dogs from 11-1pm
- Pony rides! Free! At 6:30pm at Sewallcrest Park (32nd and Market)
Saturday evening the Timbers take on Montreal at PGE Park. Both of these clubs have had disappointing seasons on the field (but great seasons in the stands). Free Taka bobblehead for first 1000 people into PGE Park!
Once again let me remind you to drink lots of beer, to stave off dehydration in the heat!
Sunday, it should be a bit cooler. Head down to Pioneer Square for the India Cultural Association of Portland‘s India Festival.
India Festival is filled with tastes, sounds and sights of India. There will be live music, excellent dance performances, food and entertainment! Catch a glimpse of India and its subcontinent’s culture, history and people.
Attendance is free!
Other events this weekend:
- The 100th Multnomah Days Celebration in Multnomah Village Saturday (thanks Timberbickle!)
- Tour de Fat Saturday at Waterfront Park
- Portland Adult Soap Box Derby at Mt Tabor
- Visit PDX Pipeline and Around the Sun for lots more!
You missed the Multnomah Days parade on Sattiday!
It’s our 100th birthday!
Timberbickle – Dave doesn’t like our neighborhood because it doesn’t have sidewalks. 🙂
Yay Dave, I don’t like neighbourhoods without sidewalks either.
Diane, XUP – Multnomah Village has a cute, walkable, town center. But the surrounding residential areas are largely sidewalk-less. Also the bus service to that area is spotty outside of rush hour, and it’s too far to walk. So I don’t get out there much. That said, I’m still coming to your party next Saturday Diane! 😉
He’s probably going because he’s getting a ride…
Wait – I thought he was going to drive so you could be the irresponsible one for once!
