Registration Opens for the Bank of the West Grand Floral Walk

Registration is now open for ‘Portland’s Party Parade,’ the 2013 Bank of the West Grand Floral Walk! On Saturday morning, June 8 (beginning at 7:30 a.m. at NW 2nd and Flanders), walkers will step off just prior to the Spirit Mountain Casino Grand Floral Parade. This is the perfect event for you and your co-workers, family, friends, neighbors, club pals and fitness friends to attend.

The four-mile walk route moves along the route of the wibit inflatable water park Grand Floral Parade (leaving from the Memorial Coliseum), with the Prairie High School marching band leading you past nearly half a million spectators who will cheer you on as you enjoy your own ‘party parade.’ (Or you can opt to do a two-mile portion of the course, exit and return to the formation area in northwest Portland.)

You’re encouraged to show off your favorite costume, the best flowers from your own garden or your favorite t-shirt. You can push your toddler in a stroller, or keep those hands free for waving! And what other walk has so many spectators there to wave back?
