It’s just over one month that Portland Sunday Parkways begins. If you are unfamiliar, each month from May through September, several streets are shut off from motorized vehicles in different parts of the city. Then people walk the streets, bike, unicycle, and several vendors come out, as well as live music, and other entertainment. It’s a great time!
In 2014, 108,900 Portland area residents and visitors participated in Sunday Parkways! This year, Sunday Parkways is happy to present five more fun community connecting events.
