I promised these photographs before I ever left on my trip to Oregon, and I apologize for the delay. The heat was unusual for Portland, particularly the coast (it was 100 degrees F. there), and I was ill a great deal of the time with heat exhaustion. I am still kind of recovering from it.
Anyway, Pixie Kitchen and PixieLand were mainstays of my Oregon childhood. Despite both of them being gone for many years people flocked to PixieFest to see memorabilia and props like the original whale ride car shown above, eat some of the recreated recipes, and reminisce. There was entertainment on the main stage, including an excellent band fronted by Portland’s Dante Zapata. I’ve included a video below as a bonus track. Enjoy!
