'Club Bridgeport' seeks to draw families to Bridgeport Village this summer

Bridgeport Village will be offering a series of free and “nearly free” summer activities for children this summer on Wednesdays.

The activity series, called “Club Bridgeport,” is geared toward kids ages 2 to 12. Each week will feature a different theme, including “Club Exploration” with reptiles like iguanas, snakes and tortoises and “Club Ducks vs. Beavers” for fans of University of Oregon and Oregon State University sports.

Club Bridgeport is scheduled to run from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Wednesday from July 6 through Aug. 31 in Bridgeport Village's center court, located at 7455 S.W. Bridgeport Road, Tualatin.

The series kicks off next Wednesday with “Club Jedi,” featuring “Jedi training” and other activities with a “Star Wars” saga theme.

The theme on July 13 will be “Club Play,” exploring the habitats and play spaces of humans and several animal species, such as dogs, cats and birds.

“We’ve offered ‘Club Bridgeport’ for several years,” said Kimberly Blue, regional marketing director at Bridgeport Village, in an email. “This year, we’re offering new weekly themes and more live animals.”

The summer activity series is sponsored by the Oregon Zoo. A full schedule can be found online.

Club Bridgeport also coincides with a “Summer Movie Express” program being run by Regal Cinemas, which has a movie theater at Bridgeport Village. Tickets will be available at the box office for $1, with all movies starting at 10 a.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The movies are family-friendly, mostly animated features and are not new releases.

The theater is located at 7329 S.W. Bridgeport Road, Tigard.

Wednesdays are also farmers market days at Bridgeport Village this summer.

“On Wednesdays, families can ‘stay the day’ and take advantage of $1 morning movies at Regal in the morning, enjoy Club Bridgeport afterwards, and then swing by our new farmers market that starts at 4 (p.m.),” Blue said.
