Here are a couple of photos of the most recent First Friday in Portland. The first photo s at Congress Square. I like the addition of arts & crafts vendors on this stretch of Congress Street and think it would be great if they came out every Friday.
Vendors also gather in Congress Square Plaza/Park to the left of the above photo, in front of the Eastland Hotel.
A street performance a little bit further down Congress Street. Not sure if this band has a name, feel free to leave a comment to this post if you want to name them.
For more info about First Friday, check out the official site here. The site provides event listings, maps, and a list of participating galleries/shops/restaurants/etc. See you at the next one on August 5th!
