PORTLAND, Ore. — There is plenty to do around the Portland metro(ish) area this weekend, from skating on the waterfront to watching a movie in the comfort of your own home while still supporting local. Here are our 8 things to do this weekend:

Dozer Day Drive-Thru
May 15-16
9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Got a kiddo that is obsessed with trucks and the like? Well, drive-thru Dozer Day might be the event for you. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this event will be a drive-thru event but it is described as an "exciting opportunity to feel like your family car has landed right in the middle of an active construction site with real operating machinery." There are several Dozer Days around the Portland metro-ish area.
