Seaport Celebration is a free, family-friendly event alongside the Willamette River that takes people behind the fences and onto the docks of a working marine terminal. This is the one day of the year it is open to the public.
There will be activities and excitement for all ages -- live music and entertainment, big equipment and welding demonstrations, $5 jetboat tours of the working harbor, games and prizes, and tasty food carts.
New this year is a local art exhibition displayed inside shipping containers, and a cooking competition where kids will be paired with chefs to create dishes using top Oregon exports. There's something for everyone, and best of all admission and parking is free.
