I was downtown at Noon and saw flashing lights and heard drumming and I assumed it was another stupid protest.
Nope! It was Portland’s Christmas tree on its way to the Courthouse Square.
There was a band and a baton twirler and a few random vehicles and a guy dressed up like a pig. (Your guess is as good as mine.)
And look who else?
I know it’s blurry. That’s my specialty.
The internet tells me it’s a 75 foot Douglas Fir.
I had no idea there was a Christmas tree parade. I miss all this stuff because I hide in my office.
