We headed down to Seattle and Portland last weekend. Yes, again. We love Portland. What can we say? :)
We were there for 3 days and 2 nights and there were so many summer festivals happening! Wow!
We watched them set up for the CRAFT PDX Block Party which was awesome! The event is to celebrate Portland's Museum of Contemporary Craft's first anniversary being at their new location in the Pearl District. The event was held on Sunday and we went down on Saturday for a sneak peek of their evening gala set up. I love watching set up. I know. I'm such a geek.
Saturday was also packed with other goodies including a bike festival at the park outside of Lloyd Center, two farmers markets, an International market by the hotel we were staying at and of course, Portland's Saturday market right by the Burnside bridge.
If that wasn't enough for you, Crafty Wonderland was held on Sunday at the Douglas Fir Lounge and Seattle hosted the Chinatown-International District Summer Festival. Of course, I forgot my camera for everything and only took one picture the entire weekend. The picture is from a vendor at the Seattle festival that carved fruits and vegetables into amazing art.
In other news, I went biking yesterday for the first time in many, many, many years! I'm planning on biking to the Flower Factory later today, so hope that goes well!
