Something Fun To Do Today

Looking for something fun to do this weekend?  (Aside from finally getting a chance to take your kiddos to the park?!  Yay, Sun!)  Of course, the Portland Area is full of exciting things to experience and try, but here’s a little something going on this weekend only that might be fun for your entire family (and one is FREE!).

I'm going so I can find out more about Eco living, not to see Daryl Hannah. 😉

The Expo Center has all kinds of goodness going on today and tomorrow for families, bike riders, and crafters.  The biggest event is The Better Living Show going on right now until 8 or 9 PM.  (Not 100% on that time.)  It’s open tomorrow from 11-5 PM, which may or may not be the better day to go since I hear the rain will be back.  Boo.  I’m super excited to attend this event and hope to catch a glimpse of Daryl Hannah!!  Okay, so I’m a fan, so I find this extra exciting.  She’s set to speak on the main stage at 7 PM tonight.  Please visit their website or facebook page to find out more and keep up to the minute on what’s going on at the show.  Oh, and the entrance is free to this event!

Going on simultaneously is the Portland Bike Show now until 6 PM tonight, and again tomorrow from 10 AM – 5 PM in Hall E.  Adults are $10 and kids are free with paid adult.  This is where my husband will be checking out the latest and greatest in bike gear while I’ll be in Hall C checking out Heirloom’s Rubber Stamp and Paper Arts Festival.  It’s open until 5 PM today and 10 AM – 4 PM tomorrow.  Cost is $8 today (gets you in tomorrow, too) or $6 for Sunday only.  We’ll need to divide and conquer with the kiddos, but that works fine for me (especially since they’ll all want to go with my husband into the bike show).  Hehehe.

Be prepared that parking will probably be around $8.   Of course, you could take the MAX or bike there, too.

Hope to see some familiar faces at the Expo Center, but if I don’t see you, I’ll know you’re outside enjoying this glorious sun!  🙂
