This past weekend the City of Roses hosted two wonderful traditions:
The Portland Pride parade and festival, which we participated in two years ago but have been unable to attend the last few years because of its unfortunate scheduling on Father's Day...our friends participated both last year and this year, and Catherine shared this wonderful account (with great photos) of this year's parade on a friend's blog. I love it that the Mennonites were represented, in addition to bunches of other religious faiths. And isn't it great that Nike is such a strong supporter of the event, and even its CEO marches? (I remember the Nike contingent from 2 years ago--you couldn't miss them because of their volume and matching t-shirts.)
I do love my wacky city most of the time!
