PORTLAND -- The Port of Portland opened Terminal 2 to the public Saturday for the 2011 Seaport Celebration.

The port is closed to the public all other days of the year for security reasons, said Port of Portland's Brooke Berglund.

But Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. visitors went inside the fences "for a rare, up close and personal look at the big ships, cranes, trucks and trains that keep the Portland Harbor moving," Berglund said.

The event included machinery demonstrations, kids' activities, jet boat rides, international food carts and more.
