Info About Parade Rules and Amenities
The Parade Access Ordinance is still in effect. Parade fans are welcome to save their spots, in person, 24 hours before the parade. Please do not use tape, paint, or chalk to mark your viewing spot. Portable toilets will be provided along the route for those who intend to camp, and there are designated viewing areas for elderly guests and those with disabilities.
Parade Seating for the Disabled
The Portland Rose Festival -- in cooperation with the City of Portland and TriMet -- will be offering two locations along the Grand Floral Parade route, one on the east side and one on the west side, for special needs seating.
Special Needs Locations
Oregon Convention Center (777 NE Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard)
Handicap-accessible parade-line seating is available in a reserved area at the south end of the Oregon Convention Center property. Space is limited, so guests must request tickets in advance to have access to the seating area. A maximum of two tickets per request (disabled guest plus one companion) will be granted while supplies last. Chairs will be provided and outside food and beverages are permitted.
To request passes or if you have questions, please contact Megan Snell at email@example.com or 503.227.2681.
