Wear a costume that celebrates ocean mythology for family-friendly Portlandia Mermaid Parade. It starts with a noon ceremony at Japanese American Historical Plaza (north of Burnside Bridge), and heads south at 1 p.m. to Poets Beach for swimming and a beach party. Free. After the parade, swing by Powells to grab a copy of Tall Trees of Portland celebrating other Portland artists. Then leave the kids at home and head out to the Siren’s Masquerade Ball  at 8 p.m. (age 21+).
