Ferris Wheel at Rose Festival

rf08_ferris_wheel_night

Here's what I found at rosefestival.org about the fun along the Willamette, only one of many, many activities during the festival's run, May 29-June 8.

The Rose Festival's WaMu Waterfront Village is where Portland celebrates its favorite family traditions, awesome new activities and diverse cultural influences. Located along the scenic Willamette River in Governor Tom McCall Waterfront Park, the WaMu Waterfront Village offers a park-load of whimsical and magnificent kid's adventures. Quite simply, the WaMu Waterfront Village is a great place for parents to bring their families. Come see why our village was honored from among IFEA's 2000 plus member festivals.

Along with this year's featured attraction, Dinosaur Jurassic Journey, the village features the Pacific Northwest's largest carnival, five stages packed with family entertainment, the BI-MART Kids Zone, WaMu Big Top Stage, zany strolling minstrels, two of the tallest thrill rides in the Western United States, three food courts, marching school bands and festive cultural music.

That is a great ferris wheel photo!
I hope you didn't ride the ferris wheel while you were still high from exhaust fumes and the headiness of standing next to number 88 :)

Beautiful shot of the ferris wheel! The FW is my favorite carnival ride.

Also like the previous posts. So, what's your thought on Jeff Gordon? :-)

For theme day, I'm showing a bit of my former store (since it fits the bill) if you're interested. . .
