Oktoberfest & Under The Autumn Moon Festival

Portland Chinese GardensI had an eventful weekend to say the least…. on Saturday, Justin and I went up to Oregon City to check out the Michaels, Joana’s Fabric, and the goodwill. I got three brand new cross-stitch projects for the price of one at Michaels at Joana’s for a really great deal. I also got two new pair of jeans (5/6 Petite) that don’t drag on the ground out all ( this is good so no getting wet and wearing out). They both fit nicely … also Justin got the game of Clue for only two bucks 😉

And spur of the moment, we decided to go up to Mount Angel to check out the Oktoberfest. Well, it was kind of a let down to us. There was nothing to do… all there was mostly were vendors. Now, a real festival has more than vendors… I mean come on …they should have had someone telling the history of the festival, had German craft being displayed…etc..etc… ah well, we won’t be going back again.

Now on Sunday, we had a much better time. I was watching the morning news the previous day and I saw the Autumn Moon festival going on and that China Town in PTL was opening up their gardens free to the public. So, I’m all like hey lets go and we did and we had a good time and we left just before it starting pouring \o/ The drum performance was really cool to watch and with the flute added in it was really good 🙂 I’ll be putting the performance up on Youtube later this week. Fall is pretty much officially here with highs of 65-70’s now 🙂
