Duluth Seaway Portorama

The Duluth Public Library’s Vintage Duluth blog recently published a retrospective on the Duluth Seaway Portarama, an annual summer festival sponsored by the Duluth Jaycees from 1959 to 1969. The modern day relevancy, as the post notes, is that in February the Minnesota House of Representatives repealed sections 333.50, 333.51 and 333.52 of Statute 19-1642, “eliminating crime of unauthorized use of the name and mark “portorama.”

Is someone making moves for a Portorama revival?

To join in the fun, here are random images that pop up in Perfect Duluth Day’s image library when searching for “portorama.”
