    Oh wow we just moved to the Portland area 2 yrs ago and have never been.
    We have heard so much about the festival we would love tickets to go please.
    The kids would have so much fun!
    What a great fun, exciting way to enjoy the festivities and support our love of Portland.

    • Amy May 20, 2014 at 2:31 pm #

      Didn’t get to go last year! LOVE PDX, can’t wait for the parade!!!

    • Leonard Rosenfeld May 22, 2014 at 7:21 pm #

      We have had a booth a similar event and would love to check this out for the same reason. We give away bibles, literature, etc. We also have a book we sell written by one of our missionaries.

  2. Denise Martin May 19, 2014 at 5:21 pm #

    Oh My God! Pick me. This is our very favorite family event of the year but not one we can afford easily. Please pick us. I want to watch my son’s face as I tell him we have tickets for the rides!

    • Burn May 25, 2014 at 9:10 pm #

      Kiss ass we all want the tickets!

  3. Tamara Colpitts May 19, 2014 at 5:23 pm #

    We would love to win the unlimited rides prize… My family loves Rose Festival and this would be such an amazing gift….

  4. Colette May 19, 2014 at 5:32 pm #

    My son is just now tall enough for the big boy rides!! This would be something he would always remember…he is one fearless tall 6yr old. I would love to be the mom who got the chance to take him. Thankyou :)

  5. armando May 19, 2014 at 5:37 pm #

    oh man the kids would love these!

  6. John Thomas May 19, 2014 at 5:39 pm #

    sounds like a blast

  7. Evonne May 19, 2014 at 5:41 pm #

    My children have never attended this event and it would be a wonderful surprise for them.

  8. Evonne May 19, 2014 at 5:41 pm #

    My children have never attended this event and it would be a wonderful surprise for them.

  9. Jenny May 19, 2014 at 5:43 pm #

    Rides make me so happy!!!!

  10. Holly May 19, 2014 at 6:00 pm #

    This would be such an awesome way to start off the summer! Especially for my son!!

  11. Elisa May 19, 2014 at 6:01 pm #


  12. Kerry May 19, 2014 at 6:09 pm #

    This is my last weekend in Portland before moving back to Ireland, my family would love to finish our amazing year in Portland with some amazing memories at the Fair.

  13. nicole holman May 19, 2014 at 6:12 pm #

    My husband and I have been married for ten years and our first date 14 years ago was at the fair. Every year we go and now with our 10 year old daughter.

  14. Erica Rosser May 19, 2014 at 6:21 pm #

    Oh. So. Excited. :)

  15. Shaina May 19, 2014 at 6:54 pm #

    I’m moving back to the east coast in less than a month and I would love to go!

  16. Kathryn May 19, 2014 at 8:41 pm #

    I have lived in the Rose City my entire life and have always made it a point to come check out the Rose Festival Fun Center and all the attractions whenever possible. I have been strolling my son to see the sights for the past 4 years. On Thursday, May 22nd he will be 5 and is finally tall enough and brave enough to enjoy the fun that the Fair has to offer. I have been in school full time & working part time for the past year and exhausted myself financially. I graduated in March, just started a new job this month but still not financially equipped to afford the entertainment. I would love the opportunity to take my son as a means of celebrating his birthday all weekend.

    Thank you :)

  17. Shylo Jphnson May 19, 2014 at 9:36 pm #

    It my friend’s birthday this week (weds)! We’re looking for something to do downtown during the day! Would love to go to this! Ready to make some memories!!

  18. Yvette May 19, 2014 at 10:12 pm #

    This is one of my 13 year daughters favorite thing to do each year. Rides, elephant ears and laughing at mom screeching on the swings that go over the bridge. .
    I’m keenly aware soon she will want nothing to do with attending with mom. I enjoy every minute of it every year :) Wristbands would be wonderful!

  19. Miranda May 19, 2014 at 11:34 pm #

    I would like to win because who doesn’t like rides and the rose festival!? That is just crazy talk. Every summer I look forward to the festival, the festivities the smiling faces, the screams resounding through the area from the rides… The beer garden! I am in, pick me and it will be my screams you hear from the octopus.

  20. Colette May 20, 2014 at 4:42 am #

    Thanks pdxpipeline! Would love to be “Making Memories” at the Rose Festival Fun Center this weekend!

  21. Brittney May 20, 2014 at 8:10 am #

    I would like to win because May 31st is my birthday and I will be traveling to portland with my family from southern Oregon. Being able to enjoy the rose festival would top off a great adventure!

  22. Tyler Bradford May 20, 2014 at 9:55 am #

    Well, my son is now five, so I’m pretty sure it’s time to cram him full of fried dough and Dr. Pepper, take him on the Gravitron/Turkish Twist/Scramler/etc, and simultaneously educate him on the effects of motion sickness and centrifugal force.

    What? they don’t allow 5 year-olds on the Vomitron? #THANKSOBAMA

  23. Tim May 20, 2014 at 10:33 am #

    It would be fun to take my family down for some carnival rides. We usually don’t make it down
    but if we won some unlimited rides we would make it this year for sure!!

  24. Michelle May 20, 2014 at 11:08 am #

    What a great way to celebrate my birthday :-)

  25. Aaron May 20, 2014 at 11:21 am #

  26. Theresa May 20, 2014 at 11:21 am #

    My new GF LOVES THIS FEST! I would like to surprise her with tix!

  29. Santi May 20, 2014 at 12:10 pm #

    Recent transplant to Portland and would love the opportunity to take my kids to this event. Have heard lots of great things and your artical makes me even more excited to go. Can’t wait to see for myself.

  30. Candis Graves May 20, 2014 at 12:17 pm #

    Hi! This is my Bachelorette Party weekend and I am spending it in Portland with my girls (I live in Seattle)…this would be so much fun for us and we would forever be in your favor! #7girlsinyourfavor#luckynumber

  31. Teresa May 20, 2014 at 12:46 pm #

    My daughter and her family moved here from Las Vegas. I would like my grandchildren (3 of them) to get to know Portland and enjoy their first event.

  32. Joanne May 20, 2014 at 1:25 pm #

    I’m bringing the sun and fun from SF!

  33. Mandy May 20, 2014 at 2:06 pm #

    Wow! What an awesome giveaway! We’ve lived in the Portland area now for 3 years and haven’t had the opportunity (funds) to attend. We have 3 kiddos ages 6, 10 and 12 and they would completely freak out if we could take them! Please pick our family. We’ve never been and we would love to spend Memorial Day weekend playing :-) Thank you!

  34. Lauretta May 20, 2014 at 3:22 pm #

    Oh man, oh man, oh man! If I get the tickets I’ll take my husband and two of my students. I don’t know if the kids or the adults would have more fun, we are a little CRAZYYYYYY! Seriously though, there is nothing better than watching adults try to keep their cheese and their glasses while sliding around in those seats. Fun to do and fun to watch!

  35. Noah Dorsey May 20, 2014 at 3:47 pm #

    I want to take my sister-in-law and her boyfriend who are visiting from San Diego for the weekend!

  36. Angela May 20, 2014 at 3:58 pm #

    I would really like to win the unlimited ride bracelets to the Rose Festival carnival because even though I have lived here my whole life I still seem to miss it every year! If I won I would take my friends with me and we would have the bestest of times and make many memories that we could tell to someones children.
    Please pick me and make a girl very happy!

  37. Wintress Watson May 20, 2014 at 4:35 pm #

    This event always misses my payday, so I would love tickets so that my son and nieces could experience what I did as a child!

  38. carla May 20, 2014 at 7:41 pm #

    This weekend marks the 1yr anniversary of enduring a really terrible job that has taken so much time away from being with my family. This fair would bring back the much needed silliness and youthful fun my family needs.

  39. Haily May 20, 2014 at 7:47 pm #

    I would love to take my boyfriend and I this year!! We have never been and we need to do something fun!! This sounds like so much FUN!!! :-)

  40. JP May 20, 2014 at 9:09 pm #

    To win the unlimited rides prize….”Ohhhh……!! Hand me that paper bag quick…!!

    Thanks! I Just added that to my “Barf Bucket List”….!!!

  41. Kimberly Russell May 21, 2014 at 1:01 am #

    It’s my first Rose Festival in Portland and I’d love to experience it all!

  42. Kelly May 21, 2014 at 7:48 am #

    My kids have never been ! They would loooooove it!!!!

  43. Bethany Pettinger May 21, 2014 at 8:02 am #

    *** I want to give tickets to a well deserving friend and her family***
    My friend is a single mother that works so hard to make ends meet. She has 3 well rounded, responsible, and loved teenage kids- due to her committment to her family. She makes her kids feel special with inexpensive activities such as scavenger hunts and park outings and has never been able to afford the Rose Festival. I think it would be great for them to be able to go this year. Thank you!

  44. wendy binion May 21, 2014 at 9:47 am #

    I’ve never been to the Rose Festival and I have a very exciting first date that day. How awesome would it be to combine the two? Very awesome!

  45. Jesse May 21, 2014 at 10:09 am #

    We can’t go on vacation this year. Winning this would make my family very happy!!!

  46. Courtney May 21, 2014 at 10:51 am #


  47. Aaron May 21, 2014 at 12:24 pm #

    I want to go
    I want to yo
    I want to bro
    I want to…so

  48. Kate May 21, 2014 at 12:52 pm #

    I’m a single disabled mom who can never afford to go! Would love to go experience it with my children. Please :)

  49. Bliss May 21, 2014 at 1:21 pm #

    what a perfect family activity for my husband, 2 kids, and myself. :-) My kids have always wanted to ride the rides but its too expensive for the wristbands.

  50. Dan May 21, 2014 at 1:23 pm #


  51. KAREN Mc May 21, 2014 at 1:25 pm #

    The Rosefest City Fair Fare at the waterfront would be s blast! I need to win tickrts to lure my boyfriend into going or he won’t take me.. Please help me by letting me be a winner!!

  52. Ashley Black May 21, 2014 at 2:59 pm #

    I moved here in 2013 and have NEVER been to the rose festival or any of the events by the water front. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to go! My fiancé and I just finalized our wedding date for next year right after Memorial Day and this would start our year off perfectly! <3 I also love carnival rides and cotton candy :)

  53. Cat May 21, 2014 at 3:03 pm #

    I used to go to this all the time when I was a kid . . .although it had a different name. Would love to check it out again with my family.

  54. Nasheena May 21, 2014 at 4:36 pm #

    We love the rides…PLEASE let us win these tickets because I have the BEST kids EVERRRR & we need a day to be free & ride some rides ;)

  55. Giovann R May 21, 2014 at 5:05 pm #

    I would love to take the boys from the group home where I work to this event.

  56. Frank N May 21, 2014 at 6:21 pm #

    My friend wanted to go to this for her birthday! It would be great to surprise her and our other friends with unlimited rides at the rose festival!

  57. Kat May 21, 2014 at 8:44 pm #

    Sounds like a blast for the whole family.

  58. Ekaterina Guild May 21, 2014 at 10:10 pm #

    I would love to go! I have lived in Portland for years now and have nevet been!

  59. Kristian May 21, 2014 at 10:36 pm #

    Because my friends and I want to go get drunk and puke on some rides.

  60. Connie May 21, 2014 at 10:53 pm #

    It is a perfect match! We decided in 2014 we would MAKE MEMORIES instead of buying stuff! And, we have 4 kids! Thank you for even considering!

  61. Tina Kohler May 21, 2014 at 11:04 pm #

    Every year for the last 6 years my children their spouses and my grandchildren meet in Portland to volunteer and enjoy everything the rose festival has to offer. Its a great opportunity for us to all get together and do something great in our community at the same time. It’s usually a weekend of making memories and snapping photos and helping others. Other than a quick spin on the Ferris wheel at night we usually skip the carnival as it’s pretty expensive for all 4 grand kids to buy wristbands. Although we are volunteering two days this year down there it would be an amazing experience to win this bundle for the grandchildren.

  62. Wendy T. May 22, 2014 at 6:56 am #

    I’ve never been to the Rose Festival and would love to win free unlimited rides!

  63. Natasha May 22, 2014 at 7:12 am #

    A fabulous family night out in beautiful Portland would be a wonderful treat. Thank you for your kindness & doing the giveaways that you do!

  64. Erin O'Shea May 22, 2014 at 8:01 am #

    This would be a perfectly timed gift to our newly blended family. Each of us would be thrilled in our own way for the opportunity to enjoy and celebrate the Rose City. Memorial Day is a somber event for us and it would help lighten things up for the kids!

  65. Kelly May 22, 2014 at 8:03 am #

    I love this carnival right by the waterfront! A night that includes cotton candy and a ferris wheel ride can’t get any better to me!

  66. Teresa May 22, 2014 at 8:42 am #

    This is my favorite time of year in this city, when all the festivities start!

  67. PDX May 22, 2014 at 8:49 am #

    My son would have the best time! Thanks for the chance to win

  68. Lara May 22, 2014 at 8:59 am #

    Hurler rides all day for me!

  69. Anne Dunne May 22, 2014 at 9:04 am #

    Just moved to Portland, Oregon two weeks ago from Albuquerque New Mexico. I have heard wonderful things about the Rose festival and the Waterfront Park. What a great combination in order to enjoy this wonderful city!!!!

  70. Melissa May 22, 2014 at 10:28 am #

    My Husband and I are coming down to portland for the weekend for our 1st wedding Anniversary and would love to go to this!!! We absolutely love Fairs!

  71. Jillian May 22, 2014 at 11:48 am #

    We can never seem to afford to get the kids down to the city fair! It can get pretty expensive… It would be cool now that I have teenagers that would enjoy the rides and would get so much use out of those bracelets. We would really appreciate it :)

  72. Barbie May 22, 2014 at 12:16 pm #

    Have never been I can’t afford to go, this would be a great distraction for my daughter who has had recent medical problems. Pick us .. Fingers crossed x :)

  73. Rachel Moore May 22, 2014 at 12:26 pm #

    I would love to take my stepchildren! They are both Portland natives and have never been! Such a tragedy! I promise to videotape if either of them puke on the teacups! :) Thanks!

  74. leeann eide May 22, 2014 at 3:14 pm #

    I moved to portland in 1999 and LOVE rides. I have never been able to go to this and have always wanted to. I have been unemployed for over a year for the first time in my 48 years of life and would love to have a little fun with friends to get away from the stress of looking for work. Thank you

  75. Yume May 22, 2014 at 3:26 pm #

    I’ve never been to City Fair… maybe this will be the year!

  76. GA May 22, 2014 at 3:27 pm #

    My family has been strong despite the hard economic times and they deserve a fun family day out, Plus we have never been to the Rose Festival, it would mean alot to be able to just smile for the entire day. Pretty please..

  77. Chris May 22, 2014 at 3:36 pm #

    OMG this would be fun!

  78. William Stewart May 22, 2014 at 3:36 pm #


  79. Sara May 22, 2014 at 3:41 pm #

    I have two young boys with a lot of energy–Rose Festival wrist bands would help them burn that energy and show them a great time in Portland!

  80. Jenny May 22, 2014 at 3:46 pm #

    Yay, Leapin’ Louie!

  81. Amanda May 22, 2014 at 3:50 pm #

    I would LOVE to take my daughter and little sister!! After her father and I split up I moved up here, I haven’t seen her in about a year

  82. Ron T May 22, 2014 at 3:50 pm #

    Yee-hah! Heck yes, I want to win these wrist bands. I love rides and have always wanted to
    enjoy City Fair. There’s just not enough money to afford it. Winning this prize would allow a
    day of fun for myself and my family.

  83. Amanda May 22, 2014 at 3:50 pm #

    I would LOVE to take my daughter and little sister!! After her father and I split up I moved up here, I haven’t seen her in about a year

    • Amanda May 22, 2014 at 3:59 pm #

      And She’s going to be here just in time for the rose festival! Money has been a little tight, winning these tickets would really help me start the week of memories off right!

  84. wendy May 22, 2014 at 3:57 pm #

    It might be the last time for my “group”.

  85. Haru May 22, 2014 at 3:58 pm #

    Just moved to Oregon a few weeks ago! And recently started college life. My birthday is next week and it would be great to hang out with my new room mates to bond at this fair.

  86. Michelle May 22, 2014 at 4:02 pm #

    Two young boys and this is the best family outing we do every year. It is great seeing this through their eyes. The wonder is awesome and we look forward to it every year!

  87. Sarah J May 22, 2014 at 4:07 pm #

    PDXpipline Rocks! Oh boy, the thought of winning something……
    ….. me, win something? Ha Ha Ha! Although, it does sound
    quite delightful! Huh… yes, it is a nice thought! Oh could it be?
    Tickets for me? Could this thought be a reality…… ? Maybe …….
    This thought is driving me crazy!! Pick me! Pick me! Oh please,
    don’t you see? Why it should be….. ME!? Do you give tickets
    to those you pity? Who will win those City Fair tickets? It’s gettin
    down to the nitty gritty!

    If I DO win… that would Rock!
    If I DON’T win… that’d be Shitty!

    * Sarah J all the way – Yay!

  88. Kami Kern May 22, 2014 at 4:11 pm #

    We just got my oldest son back from 7 months of studying in Germany as a high school exchange student. My 11 year old needs fun time with his 16 year old brother to bond again. This would be perfect for them! They both love riding all of the carnival rides, and would spend the whole day enjoying themselves together! We would have a family day!

  89. Anna K May 22, 2014 at 4:19 pm #

    I am a roller coaster and fair FANATIC!!!!!!! Unfortunately, I’ve discovered that there are no “real” theme parks in Oregon. Along with my fellow thrill-chasers, I am left parched and chagrined…. sequestered to climb buildings and swim raging rapids in the hope of catching that thrill of heights and chasing those near-death moments. For my FIRST MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND in Portland, this would be the cat’s pajamas. The cherry on top! The loop in my roller coaster! Please :-)

  90. Greg May 22, 2014 at 4:21 pm #

    This would be really great to take my girlfriend and her daughter to. I became unemployed three weeks ago and they’ve both been talking about going.

  91. Kate May 22, 2014 at 4:42 pm #

    I’ve been lying in bed for 3 days after oral surgery, and now I can finally get out!
    What better way to transition back into this beautiful world of ours, then through the tilt a whirl??

  92. Faddah Wolf May 22, 2014 at 5:00 pm #

    i have relatives coming in from out of town! i would _love_ to win them unlimited rides!!

  93. Tiffany Jacobs May 22, 2014 at 5:08 pm #

    I have lived in Portland for 5 years and have never been, neither has my younger brother whom I am taking care of. I never have enough money to go. He asks me every year if we can go. I feel bad telling him no but maybe this year will be different. Thanks hope to win its awesome that you are doing this.

  94. jim May 22, 2014 at 5:15 pm #

    This would be great, fun with friends at a grand PDX festival.

  95. Matt May 22, 2014 at 5:46 pm #

    Would love to share this prize with friends visiting from out of town! What a great introduction to PDX.

  96. Valerie May 22, 2014 at 5:55 pm #

    I’d love to attend with my daughter & boyfriend we try to attend every year! :) We love the Rose Festival!

  97. Roger May 22, 2014 at 6:05 pm #

    I have lived in Portland for about ten years now and I have never been to City Fair due to working or no money! I would really love to actually go for the first time and I have a roommate who has never been either it would be a great experience for both of us!

  98. april May 22, 2014 at 6:29 pm #

    Oh, oh! Pick me! I haven’t been to anything City Fair/Rose Festival related in about a decade!

  99. Michelle May 22, 2014 at 6:53 pm #

    My children would be so happy to get the opportunity to experience this!

  100. Jordan May 22, 2014 at 6:53 pm #

    Help me get my wife out of the house so I can actually enjoy my weekend.

  101. Lemnard Rosenfeld May 22, 2014 at 7:31 pm #

    We would love to be a part of this event. We did attend a similar event in April and had a booth. We gave away bibles, Gospels of John etc. We also were selling a book written by one of our missionaries.

    How awesome would 4 wristbands be for a family of four new Portlandians!! Regardless, can’t wait to check out the festival this weekend…my son noticed the rides going up on Monday and lost his mind!

    My baby girl (well she’s 9, but they are always your baby girl, right?) is in from Spokane and is all about the rides!
    Haven’t seen her for a month as I work down here.
    Would love to be Making Memories with her & show her a great Rose Fest time at City Faire with the tickets!
    Cheers & thanks !!!

    I have a good friend visiting from out-of-town. There are many unique activities at the City Fair this year that she would find fun. I hope she would want to return to Portland as soon as possible. This city has so many unique events. I want to show it off !

    I would love to take my family to this! My husband is the only one who provides for us and our 2 girls. I’m a stay at home mom with a disability and we struggle on a constant basis with our finances. It’s really quite frustrating.

    For once, I would like to suprise them with a good time and see my kids’ smiling faces, having an awesome time!

    So there’s my sob story ;p

    Thanks for the consideration and GOOD LUCK EVERYONE! :)

    My sister is visiting Portland from San Diego for the first time, and the fair would make a fantastic first impression!!

    I am a single mom and can’t afford to go. I would love to take my daughter and a couple of her friends. This use to be my favorite festival when I was growing up. Would look forward to it every year. I would like my daughter to have the same experience.

    I want to win because this sounds like a blast!

  123. Megan Hornbeak May 25, 2014 at 8:28 am #

    Please give us tickets because my mother-in-law is visiting and we are running out of things to do and it’s making us crazy.

  124. Breanna May 25, 2014 at 9:08 pm #

    I’ve lived in Portland for 2 years now and I absolutely love the Rose Festival! I have never had unlimited ride bracelets before and I think it would be awesome if me and my family could get these :)

    I am a single mom in school with a limited income. I have 2 sons ages 5 and 9. They have been asking to go to rose festival all month. I have cut all unnecessarily items from our budget and I have saved up 30.00. After bus fare to get there and home and entry at a discount this will leave us 10.00 for really hard and would love to be able to give these to my boys. They are very good kids and deserve a little fun. Thank you for considering us to win.

    I want to celebrate my son graduating kindergarden this year, at first it was tough for him but he has succeeded with flying colors and I want to show him hard work gets rewarded.
