Battle Ground’s Ambassador Leads the Grand Floral Walk

Ben Lemons of Battle Ground, Washington, was selected Grand Marshal for the Portland Rose Festival Grand Floral Walk (happening Saturday, June 8, 2019). Ben is very well known in Battle Ground where he works at the local Fred Meyer, walks everywhere that he goes and is always smiling and offering hugs to those that he meets.


The Rose Festival is celebrating Battle Ground’s 65th float in the Spirit Mountain Casino Grand Floral Parade by inviting Ben to be the Walk Grand Marshal. He and his family are very excited! The public is invited to walk with Ben in the Grand Floral Walk — registration is open now.


On Ben’s Facebook page it reads: “I am a person who is always happy and compassionate. I always love spreading joy to people and giving love and warm happy hugs. I am Battle Ground’s ambassador and I am a hard worker at Fred Meyer as a person who returns shopping carts back to the lobbies. I have always enjoyed my job and I always will.”
