2011 PDX Grand Floral Parade

by Rainbow Bobbins

The 2011 Grand Floral Parade was this past Saturday. I watched from the Burnside Bridge with a bunch of Ducks. Below are a few scenes from the parade:

A large contingency of clowns in attendance

These ladies looked beautiful!

This float was a favorite

The Oregonian sponsored a cool pedal-powered Nessy float. Nice!

All sorts of dancing going on

An OF COURSE - many marching bands from local highschools

This is one small part of a whole mess of activity taking place in Portland right now including other Rose Festival events; Pedalpalooza; Portland Pride month; Portland dining month and the Organic Beer Festival. And several others I am forgetting. Love summer.
