Good God Magnum It's HOT!
Some events have been cancelled due to the heat like next weekend's final performances of Frida by The Portland Opera on OMSI’s outdoor stage. This weekend's screenings of Stand by Me & Coming to America at Zidell Yards have been postponed until later this summer. And Saturday's Timbers match will start at 8p rather than 7:30.
Here's what IS happening as well as a list of cool places to hang.
Pride Beaverton is still happening Sunday from 11-5p at Beaverton City Park. The food, the fun, the frivolity. And God Bless our dear friend Poison Waters who is going to be in full makeup to host this party of circus performers, food, beer, art.. Happy Pride!
Portland Public Pools and Splashpads are open and will likely be crowded!
Did you know there's an app for renting out a neighbor's pool? If that sounds fun to you it's the Swimply app.
Multnomah public libraries are staying open later to provide a cool place of respite. Open noon to 6 p.m., Friday, June 25, and noon to 8 p.m. Saturday through Monday

Remember the furry members of your family. They don't cool the way we do, fans do nothing for them. Keep them hydrated (add ice cubes to their water bowl). More tips for your fur babies.
Cooling centers are open 24/7. For those and other tips to stay cool check out more of the Stacey & Mike blog
