Portland Walking Tours

Fireworks! Fireworks! Fireworks!

May 18th, 2009

Rose Festival kicks-off this week with a fireworks display down at the waterfront. The show is going to be this Friday, May 22nd,  at dusk, which is around 9:45 p.m. Admission is free. The fireworks will be set off from a barge between the Hawthorne and Morrison Bridges. There is a great view along Tom McCall Waterfront Park, the Eastbank Esplanade, or event from the Hawthorne Bridge.

The big new change this year is the whole display will be choreographed to music! No word yet on what music will be featured. (Fingers crossed its not The Starland Vocal Band… you know, Sky rockets in flight.)

Anyway, come early to save your space. It looks like the weather should be nice. See you there!
