It’s a busy weekend! That’s why SK&H has prepared a nifty cheat sheet for fun things to do in the coming days. Like food? There’s the fifth annual Feast festival as well as both the Polish and Serbian fests. Is being surrounded by colorful people and streets more your speed? There’s the sidewalk chalk fest in Forest Grove and the Color Run at Portland International Raceway. And for vegans, there is a “prom” just for you! Have fun this weekend!
