Tillamook 100th Anniversary Festivities

Tillamook Cheese got the 100th Anniversary party started today in downtown Portland's Pioneer Square. Participants flocked to the event for samples of cheese, ice cream and the opportunity to see the Loafy, the world's first block of cheese to use Twitter. One hundred years is a long time to be making cheese, and over the decades Tillamook has converted thousands to its cause with its consistently good cheddars and squeaky cheese curds. If you missed today's festivities, join Tillamook tomorrow, Saturday August 1st, 2009  at the factory in Tillamook, Oregon from 10am - 6pm for more fun. One special piece of advice: you must taste the special 100th Anniversary 3 year old cheddar! For more info on all of the anniversary activities see here.
