It’s all been happening here in Portland and the summer’s only just started! I truly love summers here; they’re always a lot going on for both children and adults. A few weeks ago we had the Waterfront Blues Festival at Tom McCall Park. What I loved about it was that there was something for everyone. Daniel told me it’s the 25th time they’ve done it, on a yearly basis! It first began as the Rose City Blues Festival, as a tribute to the homeless. It still has that theme, as it has a mission: to eliminate hunger for all. So it’s a great fundraiser (which is important to teach the kids, that while we’re doing something fun we should think about others less fortunate than ourselves), by donating $10 for entrance as well as at least two cans of food. What’s great is that all donations go straight to Oregon’s Food Bank.
For me personally, I loved the Steve Miller Band and James Hunter. But what was great also is that it was very kid-friendly too with all the fireworks, kids’ dance classes, Blues Guitar Workshop and more. What a blast. So everyone in the family enjoyed it. Can’t wait to go back again next year!
