Roadtrip: PDX is Lit this Weekend! 

Portland Winter Light Festival is free and super cool

Yes, the sun is shining and it's 55 degrees in Central Oregon, but seeing as how Punxtatawny Phil just portended at least six more weeks of winter, we figured you might need a little pick me up.

If you're headed to Portland this weekend, head down to the Portland Winter Light Festival, a free event featuring over 100 artists' illuminated art installations, fire sculptures (a prep for the fire pit love upcoming at Oregon WinterFest!) and live performances.

Ride the Portland Spirit across the Willamette River to check out the Christmas ships, wander near the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (a major hub for some lit art!) or even stay at local hotels getting in on the action.

The Society Hotel, a new hotel in Chinatown, is getting in on the fun with an interactive art installation by artist Jen Fuller, called A Colorful Life, in every room during the fest and all the way through March. Uh, yes please.
