One of the reasons I love Portland is ...

...you never know what might turn up on the street. Honestly.

And there's always someone close by to take a photo.

And another photo. Who wouldn't want several of these young people bent on advertising the grand opening of the Evergreen Space Museum? It's in McMinnville, next door to the Evergreen Aviation Museum, home of Howard Hughes' Spruce Goose. They handed out freeze-dried fruit to folks at the Waterfront Village.

How's this one seen through the Salmon Street Springs Fountain?

OMG! I just realized this photo is pure foreshadowing of the next night when the fireboat cannon doused me! Don't ya just love karma? I do!

Great series. A wonderful way to advertise too ... I'm going out in my Space Suit today!

An excellent series of photos! I bet their costumes caught a lot of people off guard!

That's hilarious!

Our city has stuff like this happening, too. Recently, I saw a group of "protesters" carrying signs to "Save the Slot-back Pig" and giving out pamphlets for a financial company.

Great photos. :-D

"Louis" remembered the 'Spruce Goose' was in a museum - but he had forgotten where. Thank you for the reminder! Fun photos - appropriate of them to be handing out dried fruit. :-)

Re "boubou's" comment: save the slot-back pig. LOL :-)

This reminded me of a Letterman skit: How many men dressed in space suits can we get into a Jamba Juice? ROTFLOL
