40 Plus Years of Grand Floral Parade Viewing by Our Family and Friends

My family have been coming to the Grand Floral Parade for more than 40 plus years -- we haven't missed one YET!

Our viewing locations have changed over the years -- first going from 3rd and Burnside to 5th and Yamhill (under Meier and Frank's big American flag on 5th), and now to Broadway and Stark.

We now have the 'Broadway and Stark Club,' where we've been there for more than 10 years!

Friends have been meeting there for ages, and kids have grown up. And couples have met and are now married!

Yes -- we feel as if we have a lot of history with the Rose Festival!
