PORTLAND, Ore. — Whether you're looking for a little magic in the Enchanted Forest or, in an oddly specific twist of fate, you're looking for a Big Lebowski burlesque show, we've got you covered. We compiled a list of things to do this weekend in the Portland metro area:

Enchanted Forest
Saturday, June 5
8462 Enchanted Way SE
Turner, OR

The Enchanted Forest is officially reopening on Saturday, June 5 after a two week delay from when they said they wanted to originally open. There had been some public backlash about the mask policy, which would have allowed only fully vaccinated people to be without a mask indoors. Now, everyone must wear a mask indoors and may remove them outdoors.

The only way to experience the Oregon magic of this amusement park is with the purchase of a ticket in advance. The Enchanted Forest said on its Facebook that tickets for Saturday and Sunday were sold out, however tickets will become available if there are any cancelations!
