I haven't been to the Old Port Festival in at least 10-15 years. I decided that since the weather was perfect, it was walking distance and my friend asked me to go, that I would brave the crowds and see what the fuss was about. Turns out it was a lot of fun. We heard a couple of really good bands. We found spots in both the sun and shade to hang out and relax. I got to make my first trip to Gelato Fiasco Portland.

This band Time Pilots was great. They do 80's music and the lead singer was spot on with both Billy Idol and Simple Minds.
I loved that the WCYY stage was just down the hill from Amigos. I admit that I flashed back about 16 years as I listened to a cover of a Nirvana song as I stood outside Amigos on the cobblestones of Dana Street.
Here are a couple of random street shots:
All in all it was a perfectly enjoyable Sunday afternoon!
