We found a goldmine of information regarding the free! Celebrate Hillsboro event this coming Saturday, July 15, 2017. If you’ve not been, you are really missing out. The Farmer’s Market is during this time as well so you have plenty of local fruit and veggies as well as crafts, food, plants and more. All content below is from the City of Hillsboro web site at www.hillsboro-oregon.gov. There are many more bits of information located on their site. It’s also a great resource if you live in the area.
