        The 14th Annual 82nd Avenue of Roses Parade will be held on April 25, 2020. 

         “Roses in the  of Portland” is the theme, many entrants are already on board               and  we are looking forward to a fun and festive affair!!

        The parade starts at 9:30am just north of Eastport Plaza on Bush Street, 4000 SE                 82nd  Avenue.  

         Currently the largest eastside parade, it has been instrumental in the renaissance of             82nd Avenue by embracing the shopping and service area for eastside neighbors and          businesses. The Friesian Horses will join the Parade again this year as we head                   north in the geographic center of Portland, on 82nd Avenue, starting at Bush Street,             turning and finishing in the Montavilla District, on Yamhill Street at 78th Avenue.

         Eastport Plaza Shopping Center is our Platinum Sponsor.
