This holiday season, the iconic “Umbrella Man” (formally titled “Allow Me”) in Pioneer Courthouse Square will once again be dressed in his most festive ugly knitted sweater. Join in on the fun by coming downtown and taking selfies with him and other “yarn-bombed” statues. Tag your pictures with #uglysweaterpdx for a chance to have your photo featured on @downtownPDX’s Instagram.
To help kick off the season, a group of local personalities dressed up as the Umbrella Man for the annual #UglySweaterPDX unveiling on Nov. 25. For every social media post, DowntownPDX will make a donation to the Blanchet House of Hospitality. Check out their website to learn more about how you can donate this holiday season.
