Is there a way to know what is planned in the northwest in small towns within 250 miles of Portland, Or?

Hi Ted! That’s a great question! Our best options of finding small town activities are to contact the local newspapers or government offices for specific towns of interest to us. Activities are required to have permits, so several agencies from a mayor’s office to police and fire stations are solid sources of information.
