PORTLAND, Ore. — The 2006 Harvest Festival is the place to be for free pumpkins and a good dose of fun. Come to Portland Community College’s Rock Creek Campus and experience the annual Harvest Festival on Saturday, Oct. 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The suggested donation is $3 per family, which includes, as long as the supply lasts, a free pumpkin from the Rock Creek Campus pumpkin patch. In addition, visitors gain free admission to the Washington County Museum.
Along with the popular pumpkin patch, the festival will include hayrides, a petting zoo featuring the animals of the PCC Rock Creek farm, and musical entertainment, and the public will have the opportunity to have their picture taken with their pumpkin.
Parking is free. The campus is located at 17705 N.W. Springville Road at the 185th Street exit off of the Sunset Highway. For more information, please call 503-614-7379.
