Today marks the spring equinox (aka the first day of spring). 🌷

Technically speaking, it’s the day that the sun crosses the Earth’s equator from the Southern Hemisphere into the Northern Hemisphere. The shift marks the astronomical start of spring and the beginning of days that see more sunlight than darkness.

Looking to celebrate the season? Head to our events page to see community events happening this week and beyond. If you’re up for spending some time outside with your pooch, our guide to dog parks around Portland will point you in the right direction.
