NE Alberta Last Thursday

Happy Friday!

This weekend I'll be making a trip down to the coast to spend time with my parents at their new beach house. Owning a beach house has been a dream of theirs for over 20 years and I'm so proud of them for reaching their goals and making the place their own special getaway. Stay tuned for decor photos and views from the rooftop!

But uh, Back to the lecture at hand - Portland is known for being "weird" and one of the greatest showcases of this label that we've earned is NE Alberta's Last Thursday Street Fair.

On the last Thursday of every summer month, NE Alberta and connecting streets block vehicle access in the heart of the neighborhood from 6-10pm and the scene is buzzing with music, street performers, vendors, food trucks, patio bar seating, animals, dancing and more! Last Thursday is an event that celebrates public nudity expression and artistic individuality. Whether you go to eat, browse, shop or perform, you can find a new adventure around every corner.

I could carry on and on, but Last Thursday is something you and your skinny jeans are going to have to go enjoy yourselves!

Here are some of the sights and tastes that Tanna, Greg, Jason and I enjoyed:

Mexican Corn w/ Chili Powder ($3)

Mini Sandwich Shack ($2)

Only Beginning

Tonalli's Donut Shop

You can bet I'll be there on July 26th!

Portland is known for being “weird”. No truer words ever spoken.

Nothing else needs to be said.
