Check Out Portland’s Very Own Rudolph
You’ve seen the famous Portland sign if you’ve driven over the Burnside bridge into downtown. Around this time of year, the nose on the deer turns red. Here’s the full story on why each year Portland’s skyline hosts our very own Rudolph.
Visit the Christmas Tree in Pioneer Square
