Everything's coming up roses

Today, in light of the festive mood, a special triple-dose of PDP!

Portland Rose Festival - Grand Floral Parade

The Portland Rose Festival Organization has organized the Rose Festival every June since 1907. The Grand Floral Parade is the second largest of its kind in the United States (next to the Pasadena Rose Parade), and attracts over 500,000 visitors every year.

Spectators line up on the parade route

Spectators camp out as much as 18 hours before the actual parade for prime seats.

The One More Time Around Again Marching Band

The biggest marching band in the world and its 500+ members rock the streets of Portland!
