Dinosaur Jurassic Journey



Kids (and the young-at-heart) can travel to an era when Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus and Triceratops ruled the Earth. Come and explore this prehistoric adventure, where you'll see 20 life-like dinosaur replicas and life-sized dinosaur bones. Journey along a rainforest pathway filled with mysterious sights and sounds, as you experience these dyno-mite creatures up close. This exciting exhibit is only here for this year and is free with WaMu Watefront Village Admission.

May 30 - June 15, 2008

In celebration of the Rose Festival's strong ties to Portland history, this year's History & Roses Tour presented by Windermere showcases a selection of vintage Portland homes, landmarks and gardens.

Each location has its own tradition or historical significance involving the Rose Festival and offers a glimpse of early Portland life when the festival was young.

Locations on the tour are open various dates and hours (each location on the tour may charge an admission rate).



















In 2007, the coordinator of the then brand new History & Roses Tour was Sharon Tracy, a former Portland Rose Festival employee. Sharon was the Junior Rose Festival Queen in 1947. You can read her personal Rose Festival Story by clicking HERE.






Discounts are available with the History & Roses Tour Passport, which can be purchased for $5 at the Rose Festival office, or at all Dennis' 7 Dees landscaping and garden centers.

Phone Dennis' 7 Dees for more information: 503.777.7777.
