Besides a few lectures, the only Darwin Day event in Portland I knew of was a birthday party at Pioneer Square in downtown Portland, put on by Center for Inquiry Portland and the Humanists of Greater Portland. Volunteers, including myself, handed out cake to folks walking through the square. Some simply wanted cake, others were more interested in what the celebration was all about (so we told them!), and even others still already knew whose birthday it was and shared in the excitement. For the two hours I was there, the only negative reaction I recall was one woman who, on being told whose birthday it was, gave a face of absolute disgust and walked off.
