Downtown beach party
It would not be a proper Portland celebration without an after-party. Hence, the TBF 4 Summer Beach Party - featuring live bands on a barge, beer/wine garden, food carts, free chair massages, and fun for kids, including two big bounce houses and art activities coordinated by the not-for-profit P:ear and Recycled Rain Project. For those who wish to stay in the water there will be a swimming area marked off.
Turns out innertubes make great chairs. So after you float find a nice spot to lounge and take in the sun. Enjoy the music and go back in for a dip. Can there be a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon?
Floaters get in to the Beach Party as part of their registration to The Big Float with a TBF wristband. Non-floaters are welcome as well. You pay a measly $9 admission at the door.
Stick around and enjoy the party - tell tales of your tremendous voyage!
