Other info:

Pets welcome on leash. This event is in a public park, so can
sometimes have a bit of a “demo vibe”, as people will
wander in to see what’s going on. Be nice to the public. We
like them.



There is open, moving water
nearby. Please watch your children


Bring your own feast gear,
drinks and snacks for the day. Pavilions and dayshades are allowed
and encouraged.



If you need a place to stay the night before (or plan to hit the
Pub and need it for after, maybe?), Cascade Locks has three RV
parks/campgrounds and several hotels. The little campground right
there at the Marine park is very nice, and walking distance to
Thunder island Brewing!
