Preparations are well under-way for the Portland Rose Festival coming up next week:
It looks like it's going to have all sorts of rides, events, and things for the humans to make themselves sick on.
I am not much for these sorts of things, they're usually really crowded and have lots of little children screaming.
I understand the appeal of the shiny, light-up things, but not of being thrown around and around right after eating greasy carnival food.
And of course, dogs don't like to fly (unless it's straight up in the air after a tasty pine cone, or I hear that frisbees also can induce some canine aire-time)...
One of these days we have to walk over the Steel Bridge - it's the coolest looking one here, but it's never been open for walkers whenever we've wanted to walk across. It's raining today, so maybe next weekend...
Your intrepid Rose Festival report - completed. More to come when it's actually in full swing!
