Portland Happenings

pizzaSince we got back home from our amazing vacation, I’ve been trying to find some local Portland happenings for the kids to enjoy.  Preferably those that don’t cost too much since we spent a fortune in Europe.  The first thing I checked out was the annual Free Northeast Portland Fair for families.  I particularly liked the word in that title – Free – so figured I really can’t lose anything but taking the family there.

So last week I took them to the fair – which was held outdoors at Multnomah County’s Northeast Health Center in the afternoon.  There was great music, activities for kids and even dancing!  I took advantage of a couple of health screenings (also for free) and Daniel enjoyed the local youth art exhibit.  So all in all it was something to do – for free – for an afternoon.  We ended up having a late dinner with the kids at Sparky’s Pizza…sooooo good, although perhaps not the greatest education in healthy living for my kids!
