Spring break is right around the corner and if you're looking to stay home this year instead of travel like so many other people, there are some great events and activities happening in the Portland area. Here are just a few things we suggest you might try.
#1. The Tulip Festival
from Friday, March 23 until Monday, April 30 at 33814 South Meridian Rd. in Woodburn is the annual Tulip Festival. Stroll through acres and acres of colorful tulips and daffodils. The price is just five dollars per person or $20 per car of four people or more.
#2. See Trevor Noah at the Moda Center
The host of the Daily Show host will be broadcasting a from the Moda Center on Saturday, March 24 at 1 N. Center Court St at the rows Quarter, tickets are $39-$75.
#3. Tequila and taco Festival
Okay, maybe the kids won't like the tequila haha, but it is a really fun thing to do for parents as well. There are three taco and tequila samplings and you can enjoy live music and entertainment. And I mean, who doesn't love tacos? This is happening at the Portland Expo Center, 2060 N. Marine Dr. on Saturday, March 24 from 4 PM to 10 PM. Tickets are just $35-$80.
#4. Girl Scouts Festival

Happening at the Portland Expo Center on March 24 from 10 AM until 4 PM, explore outdoor adventures, financial literacy, arts, sports, and more. Tickets are $11-$16 (and hang around for the tequila and taco fest after that!)
#5. Bricks Cascade
if you or your kid are Lego fanatics, you can't miss this amazing event at the Oregon Convention Center at 777 Northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard on Saturday, March 24 from 10 AM to 5 PM and Sunday, March 25 from 10 AM to 4 PM. Adults and kids show off their most impressive designs all made with Legos. This will be something amazing to see.
#6. Best of Second City
A sister show much like the Second City Theater in Chicago, our own Portland will feature some of the best that the city has to offer on Friday, March 23 at 7:00 PM at Newmark theater, 1111 Southwest Broadway. Tickets are under $26.
These are just a few things to do over the next couple of weeks. I hope you find time to enjoy one of those and as for me, I'll be chowing down on some tacos.
