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

Princess Promenade (Feb 1)

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!
