Presented by Kaiser Permanente, the event will feature vehicle-free streets, live entertainment, an array of food and drinks, and information from community partners. Many activities will take part in the neighborhood’s parks.
Activities will last from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Organizers urge attendees to protect themselves against the high temperatures expected on Sunday.
Kaiser Permanent COO Wendy Watson told KOIN 6 News Sunday Parkways one of her favorite events.
“I think it showcases what’s so great about Portland. It’s an opportunity for friends and neighbors of all different backgrounds, ages and abilities to all come out and do fun and healthy activities together,” Watson said.
Health officials remind people planning to stay outside for a while to stay hydrated, wear loose and light-colored clothes, stay in the shade as much as possible and take care of your pets.
