Milwaukie - a suburb of Portland - is known as the birthplace of the Bing and Lambert cherries. However, apartment residents today know Milwaukie more for its abundance of cultural and community events.
Apartment residents celebrate the start of each month with Art a la Carte First Friday, held the first Friday of each month, except January. The entire community - local government, businesses and residents - contributes to the free event, which features live music, poetry readings, art exhibits and entertainment. Milwaukie apartment residents can bring their children as well, who are sure to be amused by the wide variety of entertainment that's featured each month.
Aside from the monthly party, local apartment residents also enjoy the annual Milwaukie Daze Festival, which has been held since 1972. The event features live music, carnival rides, games, skateboard ramps, a beer garden and a fireworks show. Local vendors also contribute food and drinks, while Milwaukie apartment residents line the streets to watch the annual Milwaukie Daze Parade.
There are still festivities to enjoy in Milwaukie during the winter, when local apartment residents and the entire city celebrate the holidays with an umbrella parade - a procession of uniquely decorated umbrellas. The evening is topped off with a holiday tree lighting in front of city hall, a fun way for Milwaukie apartment residents to usher in the season.
