Washington Park Summer Festival seizes the day

August 2, 2013

Last night, the Portland Gay Men's Chorus kicked off the Washington Park Summer Festival with an outstanding performance. KGW News captured a great rendition of "Seize the Day" - watch the video above to listen!

The Festival continues tonight with a performance of OTELLO by the Portland Summerfest Opera.  Saturday night, join us for sponsor appreciation night when PDX Jazz presents the Carlton Jackson - Dave Mills Big Band.

Special thanks to our sponsors, including our premiere sponsor, DAIMLER Trucks North America, for making the Festival possible.

Free nightly performances continue through August 10 with performances by Black Prairie, Sean Ghazi, NW Dance Project, and more.

Visit Portland Parks & Recreation's website to see the full schedule!
