Multnomah County’s newest, old, bridge opens to auto traffic on March 1, 2016. Before that happens, come on out Saturday, 27 February 2016 from noon until 4 PM for the New Sellwood Bridge Opening Celebration.
The community is invited to a celebration on the new bridge on Saturday, Feb. 27. The new bridge opens for the free, family-friendly event at noon. An opening ceremony and ribbon cutting will start the celebration around 1 p.m., followed by the “Through the Decades” parade. Attendees should enter the event at S.E. Tacoma St. and S.E. 6th Ave.
Food carts, retail and non-profit booths will be located on the bridge for the party. There will be entertainment on the main stage and along the bridge, and a few surprises. The first to arrive will receive a Sellwood Bridge lapel pin to commemorate the day.
Parking is limited – take the bus, or just walk down if you’re a neighbor. More event details, including a parade map at the event page.
