Portal, Arizona - Oktober Fest

A long day that started early in Portal, Arizona yesterday.  Oktober Fest celebrations were held around the Portal Post Office just past the Portal Peak Lodge in Cave Creek Canyon.  There was a large turnout throughout the day and it is hard to believe that so many people live in the area.  Picked up a copy of the new Portal Rodeo community phone book for the Painted Pony Resort, sold several copies of the Bootheel Photodocumentation Project, and ate some great food.  Below is a time lapse video from the event with some good Polka music.  Though I did not hear any specific German accents, I did hear several northern European accents during the day so there was some international presence at the festivities.


  1. This was a great event for Sew What and Portal Rescue.

  2. Yes, an excellent turnout for a good cause.
