Sat, Nov 5, 2022 from 10:50 am - 11:10 am PDT
1219 SW Park Avenue Portland, OR 97205

General Admission Pass required for entry

Mary had a little plan
that sprouted on the spot.
It all began the day she passed
a drab, abandoned lot. 

Fashion-forward Mary is known for adding flair everywhere she goes. When she spots an abandoned lot in her neighborhood, Mary knows she can use her stylish talent to spruce it up. Soon she’s rallying neighborhood shops and calling on her friends to help. With Mary leading the way, this group carries out her little plan that has a big impact on her community!
