Portland's Cinco de Mayo Festival Starts This Weekend @ Waterfront Park | May 1-5

There are a lot of great events in Portland this weekend (especially on Saturday), but making some time to check out the Cinco de Mayo festival at Waterfront Park is a good bet. Not sure if the Max is increasing its schedule this year or not, but that should be announced by Friday.
