Portland Starlight Parade
June 3 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
The Starlight Parade is the one of the Rose Festival’s most popular events offering electrified funky fun for everyone. Traditional marching bands and flood-lit floats, glow-in-the-dark umbrellas and unique hand-built entries create a vibe like no other on Portland’s downtown streets.
The Starlight Parade continues a longtime festival tradition from the early 1900s, when illuminated floats built on electric trolley cars made their way through the city on trolley tracks. Today, participants light up the night with approximately 100 illuminated entries drawing hundreds of thousands of spectators to downtown Portland. Don’t miss the fun of one of the Rose Festival’s best and brightest traditions!
