Save the Date: Hale Pele 4th of July Block Party

Presented by Hale Pele

Our friends at Hale Pele want to put together a 4th of July block party for you and for their neighbors. We're still working with the city to get the permits, so it's not a done deal yet, but take a chance and save the date, and adjust your travel plans accordingly. If we can make this work, it's going to be a whole lotta fun! And if we can't, well...there are worse places than Portland to have a spare day on your hands! We'll post more details as soon as they're available.

All ages, Family friendly
