Prince 4Ever!

No Prince Vs. Bowie this year it is just Prince Vs. Infinity
Celebrating Prince's Birthday today, June 7th

He would have turned 61 years old today

Prince didn't celebrate birthdays and would often say: "You only had ONE birthday, the day of your birth!"

But we are going to celebrate Prince, his life, his music and his legacy . . .

For this year's mobile bicycle dance party we're starting again at the Prince Mural (up on NE 42 and Prescott) down to Prince Bike Lane Tribute and ending with a dance party!

Bring Lights! Wear PURPLE! Ride at Own Risk!

*Lighthearted prelude protest, expounding the principles of http://pdxwnbr.org/why/ (but without the nudity?)
