A cherished highlight of the Portland Rose Festival, this popular procession is more than just a spectacular floral-filled parade — it’s a beloved annual tradition. A colorful reflection of local, regional and international communities, the parade draws hundreds of thousands of cheering viewers of every age, along a 4-mile route that winds through city streets and across the river. The parade, which took place on Saturday, June 8th, featured both large and mini floats along with bands, equestrian units, marching groups, drill teams, vintage vehicles, dancers, llamas, flags and so much more!
