Join your friends and neighbors in honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by volunteering over MLK Weekend!

For the eleventh year in a row, United Way of the Columbia-Willamette and Hands On Greater Portland are teaming up to make it easy for you to take action across Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas, and Clark Counties and make a difference through volunteer service.

Escapism Portland is proud to introduce our seventh escape room experience: Malice Manor, Portland’s only haunted escape room!

Secrets can be hidden, but never destroyed. This was the harsh lesson learned by the members of the Randle family, whose cursed bloodline came to a tragic and mysterious end nearly a hundred years ago. Since then, tales of ghostly voices, doors that open themselves, and visions of a little girl have haunted the home.
