Ahoy, Portlanders. Water, water, everywhere this weekend and plenty of fun ways to jump in and learn about the local maritime industry. Go behind the fences of an active marine terminal to explore the working waterfront with activities and excitement for all ages at the Seaport Festival. Explore a floating museum that’s housed on the last operating sternwheel steam tugboat in the United States. When your sea legs are weary and in want of land, you can explore Multnomah’s Street Fair or cheer on the racers at the PDX Adults Soapbox Derby.
