Portland Winter Light Festival 2024

I’m grateful for my city who puts on a light festival in the darkest of winter. It lights up my creativity and I love seeing the art people crafted with light.

I visited the World Trade Center hub for an hour downtown and was greeted with colorful sea creatures, pulsing interactive displays, and a cheerfully illuminated crowd to celebrate with.

Next year, I hope they keep the same format where the festival is over two weekends. There was much more to see that I wasn’t able to. I would love to bike around downtown to see all of the different exhibits.

Coincidentally, I bumped into a web industry celebrity (Jason Grigsby, right) who has been helping with me with website performance. Great to find a fellow light festival fan.
