Kruger's Farm has three options for maze-crazed customers. The daytime corn maze is a confusing, twisting path through the corn. At night, it transforms into the Cabaret Maze, with fire performers, musicians, fortune tellers and spooky movies showing in the clearings. Then, there's the Haunted Maze that's most likely too frightening for littlest ones. For the daring, sign up for a time slot, then enjoy the Cabaret while you wait your turn. When your time slot comes up, a tractor will take your party out to the haunted maze. 17100 NW Sauvie Island Rd. Sauvie Island 503-621-3489 Online: krugersfarmmarket.com Photo credit: Kruger's Farm

The greatest beach party in the country is once again coming to Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square July 18–20. Yoshida's Sand in the City features fun for all ages with incredible sand sculptures, interactive youth exhibits, live music, entertainment and more! The excitement begins on Friday, July 18th, when amateur corporate-sponsored teams have only six hours to build an elaborate sand sculpture, designed with the help of an architect and sand All Star. The teams will have trained and practiced for more than six weeks in an attempt to win the coveted Golden Shovel award. Competition is fierce on building day! In addition to the visually stunning sand sculptures, Yoshida’s Sand in the City hosts outstanding activities for kids at the Evergreen Aviation Carnival Tent. Families can interact with the Communities for Safe Kids puppets, experiment with science and do sand art projects! After enjoying food and drinks, kids can build their own castle in our giant Sand Box, have their face painted, or take in one of our live performances happening all weekend. 2014 Sponsors: A special thank you to this year’s sponsors: Yoshida Group, Hoffman Construction, Ultimate Ears, NIKE, Evergreen Museums, US Bank, Clif Bar, Alpha Broadcasting, Radio Disney-Portland, Portland Family Magazine, Brainjar Media, NW Natural, Portland Disposal, Lawstein, Crater Lake Soda, University of Portland, Cherry City Electric, Gunderson & Fredrick PC, Schnell, AMR, Kohl’s, Fazio, Coffman Excavation, Westech Construction, Pemco, and Western Partitions Inc. 2014 Sand Teams: Alpha Broadcasting, Hanna Andersson, Hoffman Construction, Kuni Automotive Group, Lexus of Portland, Nike, Inc., OMSI/ Vernier Software, SRG Partnership/PAE, Turner Construction/Ankrom Moisan, Ultimate Ears, Yoshida Group and ZGF Architects.

The charities benefiting from this year’s event are: Angels in the Outfield-support for children that are victims of crime or child abuse; Forward Stride-after school therapeutic horseback riding program for children; Friendly House After School Program (Project Return)-an after-school program for at-risk children; Communities for Safe Kids-an innovative, educational program that draws from the latest research on violence prevention using puppetry. Great entertainment happening all weekend: Saturday’s headliner, Petty Fever, is a Tom Petty cover band that won LA Music Festival Tribute Band of the Year in 2013. Don’t miss 90 Proof, East on 14 or the Power Pep Band.
