🌹🌹Well the Portland Rose Festival will kick off this weekend signaling the start of summer. All kinds of activities take place throughout the following week in and around Portland culminating in the Grand Floral Parade on Saturday, June 9th. The Rose Parade is over 100 years old and is famous for its fabulous flower covered floats. As I have posted before, roses are synonymous with Portland which is also known as the Rose City. Go to an MLS Portland Timbers soccer game and you will hear the chant, RCTID – “Rose City ‘til I die”. Anyway, the festival is a fun couple of weeks.
To see more on the Rose Festival see their website here.

Fun Fact: You can see all the Rose Queen signatures along the pathways of the Portland Rose Test Garden in Washington Park.
