The Blues Festival
There are lots of things to do in Portland. It is an exciting and vibrant city. I will make periodic posts about fun things to do. Feel free to comment about things that you would like to add to this list.
The Portland Blues Festival is an annual tradition in Portland. Thousands of people show up to this event to enjoy top blues performers from around the country. It usually occurs around the 4th of July. This year, the final day of the Blues Festival was on the 4th of July, but next year 2012 the Festival will begin on the 4th. The event is sponsored by the Oregon Food Bank, and there is a $10 suggested donation and they also ask for 2 cans of food. This year, the event raised over $700,000 and Tons of food for the sponsor.
I love the Blues festival. It is great way to spend a hot, sunny summer day in Portland. The views of the river are amazing, the music is to die for and it is a great place to hang out with friends.
