Rose Festival Gets a Lyft For Starlight After-Party

The Festival Announces Their First Official Ride Share Partner

Highlighting great corporate support for 2015, Lyft (the popular subscription ride sharing program) has signed on as the presenting sponsor of the Rose Festival’s premier new event, the Starlight After-Party (Saturday, May 30). Lyft launched in June 2012, and is now in more than 65 cities across the country. Lyft will offer a free ride to new subscribers up to a $20 value who use the promo code ROSEFEST.

“We’re thrilled to be the official ridesharing sponsor of the Portland Rose Festival,” said Chelsea Wilson (Communications Manager at Lyft). “As a newcomer to the city of Portland, we’re honored to be a part of one of the city’s greatest traditions, and excited to provide festival goers with a new welcoming and affordable transportation option.”

The Starlight After-Party presented by Lyft is the Portland Rose Festival’s newest event that takes the nighttime fun of the Starlight Parade into the wee hours with lively trampoline for water entertainment and crowd pleasing activities beginning at 7:00 p.m. in the RoZone at Waterfront Park. Portland General Electric/SOLVE Starlight Parade fans can catch the popular night-time all-illuminated parade, and then extend the celebration with a casual stroll over to CityFair on the Waterfront. Too far to stroll? Download the Lyft app and use the ROSEFEST promo code to get your first ride free!

Highlights for the Starlight After-Party presented by Lyft on the Beaverton Honda Stage include Portland rock n roll legends Nu Shooz and Crazy 8s warming up the night for headliner and Northwest favorite Sir Mix-A-Lot. Not everything is happening on stage. After-Partiers will find special illuminated features and entertainment in between acts. With good food, good times every minute — it’s the perfect place for post-parade booty-shaking.
