Portland International Airport carpet reaches celebrity status

Oregon locals and visitors lined up inside Portland International Airport last week to snap photos with a 30-year-old carpet that has reached celebrity status.

More than 800 pictures were taken of people standing next to the segment of floor covering hung up for an event called PDX Carpet Fest.

The city threw a farewell party for the airport's trademark teal carpet, which is being replaced after three decades under travelers' wheels.

"I guess this carpet is really iconic, and I can't imagine another city getting this worked up over carpet," said Sierra Prior, a Portland resident who posed for photos before boarding her plane to New Orleans.
