For free family fun, the outdoor movies and games are always a popular option. Nature programs such as the birds of prey at Skamania Lodge, campfire programs on Mount Hood, and the cinema under the stars are all popular choices for families with small children.

Games and Pastimes of Centuries Past is a new children's program tied to the exhibit at the Museum of the Oregon territory in Oregon City. A little bit of a drive, but something worth seeing for sure.

Multnomah Days are also a popular choice from 9 to 4 this Saturday with the parade starting at 10 AM.  This all-day street fair is sure to draw in the crowds from around the entire Portland area starting with breakfast and ending at four o'clock although most people mill around till much later.
