Are you doing The Big Float this coming Sunday? You are, right? Because last year was wicked fun, and this year promises to be even most funner! It's time to stop pooh-poohing the Willamette and show your support by hopping in the water and floating with up to 5,000 other Portlanders this Sunday in The Big Float!
As you certainly know, we hate waiting in lines. That's why I pre-registered today for the Big Float online, and plan on picking up my wristband tonight at the Big Float pre-function from 6-9 pm at Bunk Bar! You can also purchase cheap life-jackets there (required) and T-shirts, too! Trust me, I know how much you hate waking up on Sunday mornings, so pre-register NOW, get your wristband TONIGHT at Bunk Bar, and skip the hassle on Sunday! HERE ARE THE BIG FLOAT DEETS!
