Fred Meyer Junior Parade Names Beloved Plumber Brother-duo as Grand Marshal

Hold onto your hats and prepare for a parade of epic proportions! The Fred Meyer Junior Parade proudly announces this year's Grand Marshals: two iconic plumbers whose names rhyme with barrio and Fiji. Dressed in their signature red and green outfits, these pixelated legends will lead the procession with a spring in their step and a mischievous twinkle in their eyes.

Get ready to witness the magic unfold as these dynamic individuals captivate the crowd with their gravity-defying jumps and unmistakable mustaches.

Family Float Award

In other news, we're unveiling the brand-new Family Fun Float Award, a celebration of generational amusement. Get your creative gears turning and concoct your own outlandish, kid-sized floats. Put your skills to the test and you could snatch up a wagonload of prizes, including a Fred Meyer Gift Card.

Swing by the Decoration Station on Parade day (June 7) presented by Visit Seaside Oregon at NE 52nd & Sandy Blvd. Stock up on FREE materials to transform your bikes, wagons, scooters, umbrellas, and even yourselves into dazzling spectacles. Remember, timing is everything, so give yourself plenty of moments to get there, at least an hour before the 1:00 p.m. parade start time.

Ways to watch the parade

Join us on parade day at the intersection of Sandy Boulevard and NE 52nd Avenue. The one-mile parade route will ignite with energy, taking a detour onto NE 40th Ave and NE Tillamook, before reaching its grand finale at Grant High School,

If you can't make it to the parade grounds on the big day, fear not! Our magical partners and good friends at Fox 12 Plus (KPDX) will teleport the parade directly into your living room. Consider it a front-row seat without the risk of rogue confetti in your hair or an impromptu clown.
