Better than your average summerfest/street fair, with several blocks of vendor tents, 3 music stages, perfect weather. We scanned all the tents, tried to find a cool cowgirl hat for Trish but they were all too big. She bought a colorful little bead bracelet.
This guy apparently liked to feed ducks and spent all his money doing so; that's an empty wallet in his hands. Didn't get his name, not a great talker, assume he was a real person in a former life.
Below, cool bird sculpture along ceiling of passageway between 2 downtown streets.
We were gonna have lunch near one of the sound stages but the only one active at the time was playing jazz. I don't do jazz but did enjoy some Dave Brubeck stuff back in the day. Jazz isn't dead last in my musical preferences, a dubious honor permanently held by classic opera; can't stand it, worse than fingernails on a chalkboard.
I attended a rock opera in Alexandria, Egypt in the early 80s, loved it! It was done by a European touring group, German I think. Do you know the difference between a rock opera and a musical? I didn't, just now looked it up: a musical has dialogue in addition to the singing; rock opera is singing only.
We chose the Pine Tavern (in business since 1936) for lunch, sat on the patio overlooking Mirror Pond on the Deschutes River. Very pleasant.
