On the Go with Joe at GirlFest

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

It will be a day of performances, hands-on activities workshops and more as the Girl Scout of Oregon and Southwest Washington celebrate GirlFest 2016 at the Portland Expo Center Saturday.

Local Girl Scouts gave Joe V. a sneak peek at this year’s event, where girls of all ages, as well as their friends and families, will be able to take part in events like climbing the ladder on a fire truck, grooming a pony or practicing astronomy.

This year the event will have a special focus on First Aid and DIY, and Girl Scouts can earn badges at the event.

"GirlFest is all about connecting girls with the unlimited possibilities available to them in Girl Scouts," Director of Programs Sarah Rosenberg Brown said. "Whether their passion is science, art, sports, or whether they're still discovering what they love, GirlFest gives girls a chance to explore their opportunities and try many of them hands-on."
