The Dragon's Head Blog: Portland Branch and Vancouver Location at Peace and Justice Fair
For over a decade this has been an annual event for us. It began just after 7 am when we arrived to stake out our favorite booth location and set up our two canopies. At 9 am the regular Saturday Vancouver continuing class met at the Bell Tower joined by Portland participants who also look forward to this event. Our booth was open until 4 pm and we offered three free mini classes during the day. The weather was perfect, 80° and sunny. The other organizations and vendors were friendly, live music played on stage throughout the day, and the adjacent farmers’ market offered good food. Many fairgoers stopped at the booth and walked away with information about the benefits of Taoist Tai Chi® and schedules of upcoming classes. We noticed that each year more people know what tai chi is and more say “My doctor said it would be good for me.” We’ll be back next year!
