SEPTEMBER EVENT GUIDE
SEPTEMBER EVENT GUIDE Awe, September! That crisp feeling in the air, the leaves beginning to change color and maybe the best part of all, THE KIDS ARE BACK IN SCHOOL. Can I get a "HECK YEA" to routine, early bedtimes and a normal schedule (lol). Actually, I had a ton of fun this summer with my little one! My family and I spent as much time as possible exploring Oregon's beautiful outdoors!
Now that Autumn is upon us and we still have at least a few more weeks of exceptional weather, now is the time to kick it up a notch and truly see what Portland has to offer! Personally, I'll be spending time hiking when I can and cozying up with a pint of Oktoberfest beer.
I hope you can find some time to get out and enjoy some of the events listed below.Also, don't miss your chance to win tickets to the PORTLAND HOME & GARDEN SHOW at the end of this blog.
