School’s out — and it’s hot! Is there anything better than cuddling up with your kids in the air conditioned theater, enjoying a free movie? Regal Theaters offer free movies on Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout the summer! Check out their site, or look on our calendar here (on your right) for more information.
New To The Neighborhood has left sunny California and come to … well, sunny Portland Oregon. They’re traipsing around our lovely town discovering fun things to do with their kids. I’ve gotta recommend their site to you.

The day following Friday Night’s Fireworks (at 9:45PM), the parade is coming to down. It’s the second largest illuminated parade in the NorthWest.
