In April 2007, a new event joined the Rose Festival lineup: the 82nd Avenue of Roses Parade.  Presented by the 82nd Avenue of Roses Business Association, the parade has gained momentum over the past four years – the number of parade entries continues to increase and thousands of folks from all over the greater Portland area enjoy this unique yearly event.

This year, the parade began at 9:00 a.m. at Eastport Plaza on 4000 S.E. 82nd Avenue and traveled north to Yamhill Street.

The parade showcased the 2009 Rose Festival Court, One More Time Around Again Marching Band, Kell's Irish Pipe and Drums, Rose City Corvette Club, and the Royal Rosarians.  Activities continued on after the parade at Eastport Plaza and in the Montavilla/East Tabor business district. 

Portland Fire & Rescue’s classic 1949 Mack fire truck proudly closed out this year’s 82nd Avenue of Roses Parade. The ‘49 Mack fire truck represents a piece of Portland’s heritage and is cared for by Portland Fire’s Station 26 firefighters.
