Do Good. Feel Good. – At the Grand Floral Walk!

Join us on parade morning for the Bank of the West Grand Floral Walk, a fun “Party Parade” through the streets of downtown Portland along the Grand Floral Parade route. It’s your time to shine amid the floral festivities of Grand Floral Parade day, with TV cameras rolling during the morning event. It’s the perfect event for co-workers, friends, neighbors, club pals and fitness buddies to attend together! We’ll provide the noisemakers and you make the noise!

Feel Good.

It’s a party, so come dressed in your best party attire! Show off your favorite costume, the best flowers from your own garden or your favorite t-shirt. Push your toddler in a stroller or keep those hands free for waving. Display your colors or just flaunt your fitness in front of the most enthusiastic audience ever. Practice that parade wave — elbow, elbow, wrist, wrist, wrist! — and join the Bank of the West Grand Floral Walk!

A “Party Parade” costume contest, exhibits, post-walk refreshments, noisemakers, and party favors are all part of the experience! Don’t miss out on exhibitor freebies including: temporary hair color at the K103 booth, souvenir photo badges from PEMCO Insurance, and Oregonian key chains! Tasty rewards are being provided for all walkers at the finish area off of SW 13th and Taylor. Enjoy treats of all sorts including Krispy Kreme donut holes, Jimmy John’s sandwiches, and bananas and granola bars provided by Trader Joe’s!
