Dozens gather for Portland's annual 'No Pants Day'

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

MAX riders stripped down to their underwear Sunday for Portland’s annual "No Pants Day."

Dozens showed up without their pants at the Skidmore Fountain MAX stop and rode for free on the MAX to Pioneer Courthouse Square.    

And it wasn’t just for show, but all for a good cause. The group is collecting winter gear to donate to homeless shelters.

Fox 12 went downtown to see how everyone was feeling about this year's event. 

"I think that it's great," said a participant. "It's keeping Portland weird. You know, people can just be people and it's not obscene, nobody's out here being weird or causing any kind of crime or anything. I love it."

"I think it's a great reason to not wear pants," another participant told Fox 12. "There's always a good reason to not wear pants."

And if you're going to go without pants in winter, Sunday was the best possible scenario. It was one of Portland's warmest and sunniest days in weeks.
