The Prized Centerpiece of the Rose Festival

A cherished highlight of the Portland Rose Festival, this popular procession is more than a spectacular floral-filled parade; it’s a beloved annual tradition. For more than 100 years, Portland families, visitors and community groups have been making memories at the Spirit Mountain Casino Grand Floral Parade. A colorful reflection of local, regional and international communities, the parade draws hundreds of thousands of cheering viewers of every age, along a 4.2 mile route that winds through city streets and across the river.

Grand Floral Float - Portland Rose Festival

This year’s flavorful and flower-ful celebration will fulfill anyone’s appetite for spectacle. Emphasizing visual and auditory entertainment on a grand scale, the parade features 17 all-floral floats, 18 marching bands, 19 equestrian units and many other special entries. Vintage vehicles, flag-festooned marching groups and colorful dancers are icing on the cake. And watch for that royal reveler, the Clown Prince, waving from his own moving throne!
