The Bastille Day celebration at Pix is one of the best summer Portland events. Here is the info from the website:
BASTILLE DAY 2008
Join Pix Patisserie on July 12 for our second annual Bastille Day Celebration! Last years fabulous success has inspired us to make this party even bigger and better. We've scheduled a whole days worth of exciting events and contests, booked some fabulous bands, and have ordered a 60# pig from Carlton Farms in case you get hungry.
There is a full list of events as the site including the Sprockettes and another Portland Pillow Fight…Message left in the comments here:
EVERYBODY TAKE PART!!
There will be a mass pillow fight on July 12th, out in front of
PIX PATISSERIE on the bastille day block party,
N Williams Ave at 1:00
Come one, come all- and here are some tips:
1. BYOP: Bring your own pillow, preferably feather (for the effect)
2. Don't hit anyone without a pillow
3. Don't start until the whistle blows at 1:00
