This year’s event will be held at thewhere the famous “Spruce Goose” lives. The Hughes H-4 Hercules a.k.a. “Spruce Goose” is a prototype of a heavy transport aircraft designed and built by the Hughes Aircraft company. The aircraft made its only flight on November 2, 1947. It was made out of wood since there was a wartime raw material restriction on the use of aluminum. It was nicknamed the “Spruce Goose” by critics, even though it was made almost entirely of birch.
As you gaze at the “Spuce Goose”, you can enjoy wines by the glass. There will be live music and chef demonstrations.
Shuttle bus service will be provided from participating hotels including the McMenamins Hotel Oregon.
