It is a lovely place just to be!

Step Group Challenge!

Are you in a step group?
How many of your people can you bring to this event?
⇐ We will meet right about on the pin, it’s a good idea to come early and claim some turf!

We will be on the east side of the river (Mount Hood side) between the Hawthorne and Morrison Bridges on the walkway that’s called the east bank esplanade.

I’ll be getting there about 7:30 PM so I get a good spot (my self-care), you would be wise to join me then and get yourself a good spot too!


Bring a radio and we can listen to the simulcast! More information is in the link below. I would like to see as many of you there, having as much fun as possible.
There will be a lot of people there and it does get crowded, so bring your patience, be early and bring a chair.
Feel free to call or text me if you get lost: David M 503-329-2517

Please announce this in your meeting!

Silent Disco!

Heartbeat Silent Disco !
Enjoy some ACA Fellowship in Laurelhurst Park
May 6th from 5-8pm for a Prince vs. Michael Jackson themed Silent Disco!

A Silent Disco event involves a group of dancers using Bluetooth headsets, all tuned into the same DJ. Onlookers hear nothing, but see this group clearly grooving in unison. It’s like a big fun noisy outdoor dance event, only it’s not actually noisy at all! It is surprisingly fun, so check it out!

There will be dancing as the sun sets so bring a blanket, friends, family, snacks! Flow arts, games, and crafts are encouraged; creative and amazing people. Things kick off around 5pm and go until around 8pm they will be bringing a bunch of headphones but get there early to guarantee yourself a pair. You must have a Valid Drivers License or ID. This is a family friendly event 🙂 Headphones can be reserved in advance through the link in the title.

All Heartbeat Silent Discos are Leave No Trace events, let’s leave the park cleaner than when we found it!

(This is an activity you are being invited to join in, it is not an ACA sponsored event.)
