The following description comes from the event organizer.Captain Alexander P. Ankeny might not recognize the street named after him and the surrounding area today. But like the friendly Captain for which Ankeny Alley is named, you too can explore one of Portland’s most popular destinations this summer from Memorial Day Weekend in May through Labor Day Weekend in September during six Ankeny Alley Festivals. Local merchants, restaurants and entertainment venues welcome locals and tourists alike to explore and support small businesses in Downtown Portland.
