An Eastmoreland 'Extended Family' Viewing the Grand Floral Parade

Families in Eastmoreland see Grand Floral Parade Day as a wonderful family-centered activity. All the 'Moms' get up at 4:30 a.m. and load designated vans with chairs and coolers.

The drivers take the vans to 'our section' on Fourth Avenue (along the parade route).

After setting up the chairs, the 'Moms' take off to find coffee, doughnuts and bathrooms! While waiting for the children and 'Dads' to arrive by Tri-Met (around 9:00 a.m.), we don our parade gear -- bright mylar hair, blinking hats and a variety of pom-poms!

The goal each year is to have our group end up photographed and in the newspaper! (It has yet to have happened...)
