It's a River Par-tay: University of Portland Willamette River Fest April 15

Ah, the mighty Willamette, lifeblood of Oregon. Who can bike along its banks in the height of summer without thinking of its beauty, its majesty...how likely it is that a stray splash will cause a rash, or perhaps a more permanent skin condition...
