We'll have Hobbit-inspired food specials, the entire film trilogy in the Theater (please bring canned goods to donate to the Oregon Food Bank), a performance of "Rings Greatest Hits" by Willamette Radio Workshop, jugglers, a balloon guy and much more. This is a one-of-a-kind party that you won't find anywhere else in Portland!
