Old Town Lantern Lighting

It's going to be hot this weekend, so if you’re looking for evening activities to head to when the temperature is more comfortable, I suggest joining the Old Town Community Association and Portland Chinatown Museum in celebrating the installation of 80 Chinese and Japanese lanterns over NW Third Avenue. This symbol of Old Town-Chinatown’s hope and resilience will be toasted with a performance from the Lee Association Lion Dancers and complimentary drinks from A-Z Wineworks and Lionheart Kombucha. The lantern project is a pilot for creating a new permit that allows neighborhoods to string lights overhead, so the more people who show up to appreciate the lanterns, the more likely the permit gets approved and we see gorgeous lighting brightening our streets.
