Want your very own piece of the world-famous PDX carpet?
Here’s one way to get: Portland International Airport is turning 75 and is asking people to share their favorite PDX memories in a written note, video, photo, audio recording or email at PDXmoments.
Each week through Nov. 29, the airport will pick one of the stories and share it on the PDXmoments website and on social media and, if your story is selected, you’ll get a PDX Carpet mat as a prize.
At the end of the celebration, the airport will pick one special story from the bunch and award a $500 PDX air travel voucher.
I’ll start…when I first moved to Portland (waaay, back in the early 1980s) I lived not too far from the airport and there was free parking out in front. Just inside the front door: the city’s first Haagen Daz outlet. So going to the airport just for ice-cream became a regular, and very sweet, outing.
