Good grief, I drove all the way into Portland, at least a forty-five minute to hour trip this morning, to watch the Gay Pride parade. I looked it up online and I’m sure I looked at the date.. I must have… It’s right there and it clearly says Sunday, June 18th.
Anyway, as I found out today is Saturday the 17th… oops. There is a festival area down at the water front today but I had to wait around until noon before it opened. Not much there just a few food booths and trinket vendors along with several other clubs, groups and political booths. Portland Police and Multnomah County Sheriff both had a booth for recruiting. Didn’t see a lot of people showing interest at their booths. I did manage to spend $15.00 on a t-shirt from a Seattle company called ajaxx63. I got the bear shirt to go with my new tattoo. Have to work Sunday so I guess I will have to wait until next year to see the parade.
