Santa's Place ++++.
I will say Eastport Plaza sure has come up on the Southeast side of Portland!
Have you seen the plaza lately? Big difference from years past.
One thing imparticular is the management and merchants put together this great place for the Holiday Season. It's called Santa's Place and it is absolutely FREE to the public. It's like nothing I have ever seen! There is room after room of childrens activities and the best part Santa Claus. Don't forget to bring your camera though.....they welcome it!
Aside from that they put together a huge charity event through out the Plaza. It's what they are calling the "Joy of Giving". They came up with this treasure map that shows customers where to go to donate. If you are partial to one charity or another I would suggest finding out if Eastport Plaza has that charity. They have 5 in total!! It is amazing what these people have done for their community!
