PDX Happenings :: February Family-Friendly Events

0

Besides Valentine’s Day, February is often a month we’d rather speed through quickly. It’s still winter, still cold, and still raining; sometimes it’s a blessing that it’s the shortest month of the year. Luckily, there’s still plenty to do around Rose City, and we have a round-up of some of our favorite family-friendly options to keep you entertained through the rest of the rainy winter days.

PDX Happenings: February Family-Friendly Events

Now in its fifth year, this Daddy Daughter Dance is growing in popularity each year!

This year, there will be professional hairstyles on site offering $10, 15-minute sessions. More details available on their website!

Portland Winter Light Festival (Feb 6-8)

To encourage folks to get out in dark (and cold!) evenings, The Portland Winter Light Festival is a family-friendly art and light adventure. With its main gallery near OMSI, this year’s edition will take place at multiple locations; check out their website for specifics. Admission is free for guests and worth the visit!
