Guess what, Oregon?!
“In 1887 Oregon became the first state of the United States to make Labor Day an official public holiday.”
I hope you all have a long (hopefully) and relaxing Labor Day weekend ahead. If BBQs, weddings and Fantasy Football drafts don’t take up the whole time, here are some other fun things to do:
Something for the whole family? Oregon State Fair
Something fun (and FREE) for the whole family? Iconoclast Street Fair . Plus, there are still a few free Concerts and Movies in the Park left in summer courtesy of Portland Parks and Rec.
Car racing enthusiasts have the Grand Prix of Portland …
Foodies can check out Portland’s hottest new restaurants…
Movie buffs should catch “Eighth Grade” ASAP! (Playing at Laurelhurst and Fox Tower)
Got a bunch of relatives in town and looking for an easy place to eat?
- Downtown: Pine Street Market
- Southeast: Mercado
- Northeast: The Zipper
Hope you all have a wonderful time with friends and family. And a big thanks to all the workers that make the world go round!
