After six years, the holiday attraction is back at Alpenrose Dairy and helping raise donations for 4-H
RALEIGH HILLS - Winter wonderland fun is back at Alpenrose Dairy as Storybook Lane reopens once again for the first time in six years. Portland's family owned and operated dairy is partnering with 4-H of Multnomah County to offer free admission to the Southwest Portland holiday tradition for families of all ages to enjoy beginning Friday, Dec. 2.
Storybook Lane is nestled in the charming old western town of Dairyville, on the Alpenrose property, where families are invited to stroll the vintage shops, enjoy warm refreshments, peek at the 4-H animals on display, listen to local choirs sing, watch old holiday movies in the Old Opera House and, of course, have a visit with Santa.
This year, the 4-H is proud to offer professional photography to capture precious memories in a range of packages that benefit the club's efforts to bring youth programs to the community.
Storybook Lane will be open 3 to 6 p.m. on Fridays and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays on the following dates: Dec. 2, 3 and 4; 9, 10 and 11; and 16, 17 and 18.
Professional Photographs with Santa will be available for sale starting Dec. 2 and running to Christmas Eve, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. With part of the proceeds benefiting 4-H.
Admission is free to Storybook Lane, located at 6149 S.W. Shattuck Road.
