The Colors of Wulapalooza

Equal parts rite of spring and Willamette tradition, Wulapalooza celebrates the end of winter with music, mud wrestling, bubbles and face painting. This year 22 bands played to a crowd basking in the long-awaited sunshine. Some raced rubber ducks, some painted chairs for the Bistro, and many danced. The festival has celebrated art, music and the earth annually since 1998.
