Crews prepare for Portland Macy's parade

Posted: Updated:

A Rose City holiday tradition continues as crews prepared for the My Macy's Holiday Parade in downtown Portland.

Workers gathered in the Veterans Memorial Coliseum Wednesday, where all the holiday floats are being assembled for the big show, which starts Friday at 9:00 a.m.

In all, there will be 25 floats, local middle and high school bands and more than 600 costumed characters.

Ann-Marie Ricard with Macy's said people can expect to see their favorites at this year’s parade, and shared that “Santaland” would open at 11:00 a.m. following the parade in front of the downtown store.
