Ummm.... items of note:

1) There are people who climb trees competitively.
2) These master tree climbers have an annual international championship.
3) This year, that championship is right here in Laurelhurst Park!

On this Saturday and Sunday, "the world’s best professional tree climbers from 16 countries will be showcasing their skill and agility at maneuvering in the trees" of Laurelhurst Park.

As some guy in a press release says: “This is New Year’s Day, the Super Bowl, and the 4th of July all wrapped into one for tree people!”

Maybe this won't be as exciting as I'm imagining it will be, but even then, there's free rides in a cherry picker on Saturday from 10am-3pm. Nothing is as exciting as free rides in a cherry picker.
