Portland, Oregon celebrates the holidays with all kinds of annual events all across the city. We are not exaggerating when we suggest that their are all kinds of events, because truly they are all different just like Portland. For example where else besides Portland can you go on an annual holiday river cruise that is dedicated to Cinnamon Bear a character from a 1920's radio show?
That's not the only one of a kind holiday event found in the city. There are lots more. For example the annual tree lighting in downtown Portland. Maybe that seems like an event you would find in any city, but in Portland they will have 200 tubas on hand play Christmas carols or maybe they will just have a guided sing along with the thousands that show up.
Of course Portland cannot celebrate any season without getting the local brewers in on it and they do this brilliantly at the Holiday Ale Festival in Pioneer Courthouse Square each year.
