North Portland has some exciting news to share! Portland Parks and Recreation has teamed up with Portsmouth Neighborhood Association, New Columbia, and Kenton N.A. to create a series of concerts in various local parks. Starting on July 8th, there will be weekly concerts held on Tuesday evenings until August 26th. The fun starts from 6:30-8:15 pm, and is FREE! It is particularly exciting to announce that the first three concerts will be held in Columbia Annex, which has never happened before.
*Come check out Nigerian-Afrobeat band Jujuba on July 8th at Columbia Annex Park, bring your picnic blankets, beverages, snacks, and neighbors. Base Camp Brewing will be handing out free samples of their latest brews. Again, that’s 6:30-8:15 pm. Fun!
