slides: Portland Rose Festival Grand Floral Parade 2015
Monday, June 08, 2015
On a hot, sunny, beautiful Saturday morning thousands of people gathered in Portland's city center and across the Burnside Bridge to watch the annual Rose Festival Grand Floral Parade.
The parade featured clowns, high school bands, cheerleaders, horses and hundreds of thousands of roses. Even Governor Kate Brown and the Oregon Duck "Puddles" made an appearance.
The Grand Floral parade truly felt like the beginning of summer, as Portlanders from all corners of the city threw on their shorts and sandals and ventured out into the sun to join in the celebration of our great city.
