Beaumont Village News – Summer 2011
by Mahesh Raj Mohan
25 YEARS OF FREMONT FEST
The best time to enjoy Beaumont Village’s natural beauty is during the 25th Annual Fremont Fest, held on Saturday, August 6. Presented by the Beaumont Business Association, the beloved festival features activities for all ages, including a cake walk, homemade salsa challenge, and a cornucopia of local vendors. To help celebrate the festival’s twenty-fifth anniversary, a student from Grant High School will design the 2011 logo. Activities start at 9:45am with the popular pet costume contest, and the children’s parade begins at Beaumont Middle School at 10am
The Beaumont-Wilshire Neighborhood Association (BWNA) kicks off its annual “Movies in the Park” series on Sunday, July 10th in Wilshire Park (NE Skidmore St. between 33rd and 37th). Movies in the Park is part of Portland Parks & Recreation program for city neighborhoods. BWNA’s movie night commences at 6:30pm with live music from The River City Trio, followed by Shrek 4: Forever After at 9pm. Admission is free, and so is the popcorn.
NEIGHBORHOOD NIGHT OUT
A National Night Out Potluck will be held on Tuesday, August 2nd in Wilshire Park. Beginning at 6:30pm, the BWNA will fire up the grill and serve free barbecued hot dogs and hamburgers, as well as other refreshments. Local restaurants will also bring picnic dishes, and residents can do the same. Entertainment includes several live performances. At 8pm, a raffle will close out the potluck, with door prizes from local businesses going to lucky audience members.
Sugar Me (1313 NE Fremont) is the only boutique in Portland to offer the unique “sugaring” hair removal process. Sugaring uses only sugar, water, and lemon—no toxins or resins. The mixture is heated to body temperature, so the process is gentle on sensitive skin. Owner Kate Sprouse says sugaring offers all the benefits of waxing and “none of the drawbacks.” Ms. Sprouse offers 15% off for first time sugaring customers.
