PORTLAND, Ore. -- Hello, Hello Kitty!

Just when you think you've seen everything in Portland, Hello Kitty takes over the Veterans Memorial Coliseum for the weekend.

The pop culture icon is touring North America with its first live entertainment show. Of course, such a unique event had to have a stop in Portland.

"She's coming to town, I have to see her," a fan told KGW's Cassidy Quinn.

The event features interactive exhibits and photo opportunities in addition to several live entertainment shows for families to enjoy.

Tickets for the event are $30 for adults and $20 for children 12 years old and younger. Shows continue through Sunday with the last show at noon.
