Rose City parade turns 80: See the history of this amazing Northwest parade unfold before your eyes as the Grand Floral Parade re-creates some of its best floats from years past. The parade starts at 10 a.m. June 9 and runs from Memorial Coliseum to downtown Portland. For more information, call 503-227-2681 or see www.rosefestival.org.

(By the way, our favorite parade fact from the Portland organizers: “Did you know there are enough flowers used on the floats to send your mother a dozen roses, every day, for 30 years?”)
