Come celebrate the start of summer at SWCR’s first annual South Waterfront Street Fair on Thursday May 31st from 4-8 pm! The Street Fair will take place on SW River Parkway between Gaines Street and Lane Street right outside of our office (in front of The Osprey and behind The Ardea).
The Street Fair will be a chance for the South Waterfront community to come together for an entertaining evening filled with fun, food, drinks, music and raffles. Rojo the Llama will even be there for your petting pleasure. That’s right, Sean Z Becker Real Estate was able to book Portland’s most illustrious and beloved therapy llama just for us from 5:00 to 7:00 pm!
There will be tons of delicious food and refreshing drinks from local retailers at the South Waterfront Street Fair. Blue Star Donuts will be handing out samples of their addicting glazed circular wonders, which you can then wash down with Con Leche’s iced cold brew. Cha Cha Cha will be serving up some of their specialties and Pizzicato will be selling $1 mini slices of fresh pizza too!
Our community raffle will be a great way to score some sweet treats from local businesses. For instance, Growler Guys is raffling off two 32 oz. and two 64 oz. free growler fills. Meanwhile, Wildwood Vet is generously raffling off a free pet package that includes an exam, a nail trim, a heartworm test, and flea/heartworm preventative. South Waterfront Dental is also giving away a gift certificate for a comprehensive exam and full mouth digital x-rays (which has a value of $228).
And of course, the Street Fair will have plenty of live entertainment. Local Osprey residents and talented musicians Barb & Rick will be playing a mix of light jazz, a bit of bluegrass, and 60’s/70’s tunes from 4:00 pm. to 5:00 pm. Afterwards from 5:00 to 8:00 pm, Smut City Jelly Roll Society will be have you dancing along to their 20’s & 30’s era swing music. There will also be one special performance (that we are keeping a secret), so you’ll definitely want to stick around for the entire evening!
We look forward to kicking off the start of summer with you at this new community event!
