Do Good. Feel Good. -- At the Grand Floral Walk!
In the Bank of the West Grand Floral Walk you're the star of your own show, along with thousands of folks just like you. And those people on the curb? They love you -- they really love you!
Join us on parade morning for the Grand Floral Walk, a fun “Party Parade” through the streets of downtown Portland along the Grand Floral Parade route. We’ll provide the noisemakers and you make the noise!
This year we are making some noise for the fight against cancer with organizations and individuals uniting to bring awareness and encourage community support.
The Grand Floral Walk is supporting the Knight Cancer Challenge as this year's official beneficiary. Phil and Penny Knight have pledged to donate $500 million if OHSU can raise an additional $500 million in two years. Join this unprecedented $1 billion campaign to end cancer as we know it!
$2 from every Walk registration will be donated to the Knight Cancer Challenge.
It's time to rally with Mascots for a Cure who will join the Grand Floral Walk from across the country in support of the Knight Cancer Challenge. No Party Parade is complete without hundreds of mascots to lead the charge! Help us break the Guinness World Record attempt of Largest Mascot Gathering!
It's a party, so come dressed in your best party attire! Show off your favorite costume, the best flowers from your own garden or your favorite t-shirt. Push your toddler in a stroller or keep those hands free for waving. Display your colors or just flaunt your fitness in front of the most enthusiastic audience ever. Practice that parade wave -- elbow, elbow, wrist, wrist, wrist! -- and join the Bank of the West Grand Floral Walk!
A "Party Parade" costume contest, exhibits, post-walk refreshments, noisemakers, and party favors are all part of the experience!
