Portland Events and Festivals!

It is hard to not let the weather get you down. I definitely begin to get a little edgy this time of year when the color outside is 90% gray. Especially when I’m feeling like I need to get out of the house and do something fun! And even though it’s gross outside, there are still some Portland area activities going on and coming up. So check it out!
