October 2 – Sellwood/Milwaukie
Introducing our NEW Sellwood-Milwaukie route! That’s right. We are moving our last event of the year to October AND we are scooping out new adventures. Our new route takes us through Sellwood, over the Sellwood bridge, and into the city of Milwaukie. There are so many exciting highlights for this route – rolling hills, beautiful views, and a trip to the Milwaukie business district and a stop by Water Tower Park.
Additionally, we are once again teaming up with the Salmon Celebration and the Bureau of Environmental Services (BES) for the second year in a row at Westmoreland Park. It’s going to be amazing! Expect fun, friends, family and a host of new faces and places along this route!
