Alas, no Timbers matches this weekend, but plenty of other fun to be had. And don’t forget to do something nice for your mom on Sunday!
The festival kicks off with a parade, featuring Mayor Sam Adams on a float! About 65 venders will be offering every kind of craft you can imagine. Live music is scheduled all day, featuring performances by Sam Densmore (Silverhawk), Michael Hurley, Lewi Longmire Band, Pierced Arrows (ex-Dead Moon), and Explode Into Colors. [more]
Trains on display include the Amtrak Cascades Talgo train, and a caboose, but again this year the star attraction is the 110 foot long, 10 foot wide, and 16 foot tall SP 4449. [more]
