A BLOOMING CELEBRATION
Saturday was supposed to be about flowers.
After all, more than 70 volunteers awoke early in the morning to hang 250 flower baskets throughout Lake Oswego, and thousands of people flocked to Millennium Plaza Park to enjoy the colors of the season flowers, yes, along with fruits and vegetables and so much more.
But look a little closer and youll see that Saturday was really about people. People who cared enough to rise before dawn and add a little village character to sidewalks and streets. And people who ventured out to enjoy the sights, smells and sounds of the now-iconic Lake Oswego Farmers Market.
At the market, happy families reveled in the first of 22 weekly celebrations of farm-fresh produce, breads and baked goods, ciders and salsas, mushrooms, cheeses, meats and more. There were lots of flowers, of course, and musical entertainment. But nothing shone as bright as the smiling faces that took it all in.
And thats what Saturday was really all about.
