Show your Peace Corps pride in the Grand Floral Parade

After a year’s absence, CRPCA has been invited to march for a sixth time in the Portland Rose Festival’s Grand Floral Parade. All Northwest RPCVs are invited to march with us, smiling and waving at an appreciative public while carrying the flag of a Peace Corps country–perhaps yours!

The 2018 parade is Saturday, June 9, morning to early afternoon; our start and end time will be announced soon.

Volunteer to participate in the parade today (flags are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis!) by filling out Be sure to list your first, second, and third choice flag. We aim to carry one flag for each Peace Corps country!

Marchers will have the choice of wearing host country attire OR a Peace Corps t-shirt with khaki pants. The parade goes forward in any weather, and marchers should be prepared to walk four miles.

Questions? Please contact Gordon Young, parade AT or 503-631-2876.
