When you see this 25-feet (7.62 meter) column with a sphere at the top, you might think this is straight out of the Wizard of Oz. But behold, this thing really works. At high noon, the tower sings a song and then heralds the weather of the day and a yellow-orange sun for those rare occasions, a dragon for the stormy day or a blue heron for drizzle, the most popular player. This little-known landmark has brought smiles to all kinds of faces.
If you are walking past Pioneer Courthouse with children in town, they'll make sure you stop and admire the little bronze animals that play in small fountains along Yamhill. Artist Georgia Gerber created the little menagerie in 1986 and it includes eternally paddling ducks, upright otters that can't seem to believe what they see when they look at you and a wonderful Mama bear fishing in the fountain for her two playful cubs. It is a real smile-inducer and a favorite among the locals.

If you are in the mood for seeing less traditional performances than the odes of Shakespeare or the musicals of Bernstein, enjoy an evening at the Imago Theater for some drama, acrobatics, mime, music and more. This Portland theater company always puts on a modern, open-to-interpretation show. The theater space, which adds an historical element to the modern pieces, is located in an area of the city that could be described as industrial.
