Oregon Hotel Reservations
Visiting Metro Portland
Portland comes alive during fall and winter. As the scarves and coats hit the streets, so do festivals, farmers’ markets, and the 2012/2013 basketball season. Don’t miss the Portland Trail Blazers take on the rest of the NBA at the Rose Garden – kicking off on Halloween against the L.A. Lakers. Speaking of Halloween, Rose City features plenty of seasonal celebrations for October’s spooky spell, and throughout the remainder of 2012. Don’t miss FrightTown at the Rose Quarter, or welcome harvest season with Pumpkin Funland at Rasmussen Farms. Holiday events are also on their way to PDX, and include ZooLights, The Polar Express, and the 2012 Christmas Ship Parade.
October’s Halloween events are a staple of Portland’s event calendar. From the Four Horsemen Haunted Attractions at Delta Park, to FrightTown at the Memorial Coliseum’s Rose Quarter, you’ll realize PDX offers more than coffee shops to keep you up at night. Although, if you’ve got the family in tow, visit the kid-friendly 2012 Wooden Shoe Pumpkin Fest at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Woodburn, or try your luck at the Haunted Corn Maze at the Pumpkin Patch – found at the Portland MAiZE.
Once the scary season is over, look forward to Thanksgiving with farmers’ markets and pumpkin festivals throughout Portland. Check out the 2012 Pumpkin Funland at Rasmussen Farms in Hood River – a scenic drive away along the Columbia River – or stock up on some Thanksgiving ingredients at the Portland Farmers Market on the Portland State University campus. November also brings cultural events to Portland’s calendar. Check out the 2012 Northwest Filmmakers' Festival at the Portland Art Museum in the Whitsell Auditorium, and get ready for the anticipated 2012 Holiday Ale Festival – operated by the Oregon Brewers Guild and held at the Pioneer Courthouse Square starting November 29th.
Portland also shines during the holidays. Don’t miss December events like The Polar Express on the Mt. Hood Railroad, ZooLights at the Oregon Zoo, or the 2012 Portland's Singing Christmas Tree in Keller Auditorium, at the Portland Center for the Performing Arts. The Portland International Raceway has transformed its track into the 2012 Winter Wonderland, while Wenzel Farm features the Christmas Fantasy Trail in nearby Oregon City. Other yuletide festivities include Peacock Lane 2012, the 2012 Christmas Ship Parade, and the Santa's Workshop at the Oregon Garden in Silverton.
And if you’re looking to ring in the near year in Portland, sign up for the 2013 First Run & Walk at the World Trade Center – a great start on those New Year’s resolutions.
