Portlanders often ask: "Where was Vanport located?" The answer is: in our backyard! Join us on May 29th for Vanport Tours: The Site and its many Stories to explore the historic sites, now PIR/Delta Park. RSVP for our (free!) guided bus tours, or grab our newly produced map (yup! free as well!) of Vanport in 1943 superimposed over the current map, and walk on your own pace. And did we mention the bike tour? Check out The Vanport Mosaic Festival 2017 full program at: www.vanportmosaic.org
