PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Portland Timbers have been chosen as the Grand Marshals for the 2016 Rose Festival Grand Floral Parade, and Alaska Airlines will be honoring the home team by featuring the MLS Cup Champs on its signature float.

For six years, Alaska Airlines and the Timbers have been teaming up not only at the stadium but also in the community.

Throughout the year, both the Timbers and Alaska Airlines employees work to clean up schools and parks in the Portland area.

Now, they will be partnering up again to be front and center for the Portland Rose Festival Grand Floral Parade.

Alaska Airlines, who is also a sponsor of the Rose Festival, gets to congratulate their partner for wining the MLS Cup last year by featuring the Timbers on their float.

Right now the design for the float is a closely guarded secret, but will be revealed on during the parade on June 11, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
