This is the first I've heard of it, I don't see why I wouldn't be going. I'll talk to El SWMBO about it.

I've been seeing posters up all over town for this for a while now. Recall it happening last year too and didn't get a chance to go. This year for sure.

Maybe, no place to park nearby and to take the Max I have to drive up to the Rose district. Somehow, burning 5 gallons of fuel round trip spikes the theme. Might be worth it though, now that organic brewers are focusing on making good beer.

The park doesn't have a parking lot, but there is street parking near the park. So no guarantee you'll find anything.

My experiences with trying to find parking in Portland have all been bad. Doesn't help to have a 8 1/2 foot tall 18 foot long van and I don't ride the motorcycle within 24 hours of drinking.

Just a little bump for all...It's gonna be a hot one today, so I'll probably be hitting this one later in the afternoon, early evening.

I've never had any problem parking downtown in one of the Smart Park garages.

EDIT - Just saw the dimensions of your vehicle David. That would be tough to fit in a garage. I've also had luck with street parking along 14th Ave just north of Burnside and with Portland city blocks being half the length of the average city block, walking from there anywhere downtown is a breeze.

Enjoy the festival guys.
