March in the 82nd Avenue of Roses Parade, April 28th 2018

Join us on Saturday, April 28th as we march in Portland’s most multicultural parade, proudly carrying our country-of-service flags! The parade route will begin at Eastport Plaza (82nd Avenue and Boise) and go north to Yamhill and SE 78th Avenue. The parade begins at 9:30 a.m. We’ll meet at 8:00 a.m. in the Walmart parking lot in Eastport at the corner of SE Holgate and 82nd Avenue to register, pick up your flag, and enjoy hot coffee, tea, and snacks – together tailgate style! We’ll walk as a group to the nearby parade starting area in Eastport Plaza. Bus rides are provided back to our starting area after the parade. CRPCA friends and family are welcome to join the march and carry a flag!!

Please email Gordon Young at parade AT to let him know you want to march and which country flag you want to carry. We look forward to seeing you on April 28th and this is a great event to support cultural diversity in Portland.
