For $4, you’ll get admission to the 21-and-over, after-hours event, taking place April 15 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Celebrate the conclusion of tax season with a night of sips, eats, and exhibitions.
Get your fill of forest fun with featured interactive exhibits for nature novices and full-fledged tree people. Measure your smoke-pouncing skills with the virtual smoke-jumper, or round up paddle-friendly pals and ride on class IV rapids without getting wet. Those interested in adventures more epicurean than earthy can refresh with backwoods beverages, including samples from the Willamette Valley Vineyards, specialty brews from McMenamins Brewery, and sweet treats from participating vendors (gourmet drinking chocolate from Sipping Dreams, goodies from Ladybug Chocolates, and more).
The 20,000-square-foot Washington Park museum is bewitchingly beautiful after hours. Its intricate carvings and epic outdoor entrance will only appear more impressive when bathed in the milky glow of the soft moonlight as the moon gets dangerously closer and closer to crashing into Earth.
