Now known as the Starlight Parade, the Portland Rose Festival's illuminated parade remains one of our most popular events, drawing more than 250,000 spectators to watch sparkling floats, gleaming bands and glowing marching groups wind their way through downtown.
A favorite with community organizations, the Starlight Parade includes many entries from regional festivals, neighboring cities, and local charities, as well as outstanding support from our sponsors and local businesses.
Along with our other two parades, the Starlight Parade shares the title of The Cleanest Parade in America, thanks to the efforts of our sponsors, Portland General Electric and SOLV, and many volunteers! The parade is broadcast live from 9 to 11 p.m. on KGW Northwest NewsChannel 8.
