I’m pretty excited to be traveling back to my hometown of Portland, Oregon this month to go to the Portland Rose Festival. Since I moved to the other side of the country about ten years ago, I haven’t been able to travel back home to attend the festival and I have really missed being a part of it. It was always my very favorite time of year back when I was growing up.For more than 100 years now, Portland, otherwise known as the City of Roses, has held the Portland Rose Festival . It’s almost like a party for the city itself. It includes over 60 events, which start in May and end in June. There are parades, art shows, fun runs, boat races, and tons of food in a carnival atmosphere. It’s so much fun to go and I love the way the whole festival celebrates the fact that Portland is the perfect place to grow perfect roses. There are three beautiful rose gardens located in Portland, and I can’t wait to go back and visit each one of them. The other thing that I’m planning on doing while I’m there is visiting several of my favorite cannabis dispensaries. Where I live now, recreational cannabis still isn’t legal. Since it is legal in the Portland, Oregon area, there are recreational cannabis dispensaries all over the place now. I can’t wait to get back to my old hangouts to visit, to eat some great food, and to get some of my favorite cannabis edibles just like I always used to.
