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.
I’m actually surprised the trees aren’t left up all year ’round, just to spark all-year-buying of Christmas presents.
I love that Santa in this post and Toes in the one after it are both sort of hiding. It’s like Pam I-spy.
I would hide in my office, too.
