It's Happening Tonight!

—With a springtime rash of perfect-weather days, Portland can be forgiven for jumping the gun on summer. And now that we've started, why stop?

Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 9 pm, $13-15

PYROTECHNICS—Portland's Fourth of July fireworks show is a cheap, sparkly bauble compared to the spectacle unleashed every year for the opening of the Rose Festival's CityFair. You've got the next two weeks to check out the calliope-tinged madness at Tom McCall Waterfront Park, but find a building or bridge or riverbank from which to watch tonight's explosions. DVH
Tom McCall Waterfront Park, show begins at nightfall
