Think Out Loud

Weekend Look-Ahead

Pete Springer/OPB

This is the last weekend of the summer, so how can you make the most of it? From the TBA Festival to Biketobeerfest to VegFest, Portland has no shortage of cultural events to check out.

You could also head out to the country to go birding at Summer Lake outside of Bend. You could celebrate the autumn equinox at Rooster Rock State Park. And with snow levels the lowest they’ve been all year, there’s a plethora of hikes available across the state.

Plus Devo‘s coming to town.

We team up with local experts to help you figure out what will be the best way to spend your weekend.

What do you have planned this weekend? What events should other listeners know about? Any hike recommendations before the snow sets in? Any TBA events to check out before it’s gone?
