PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Twenty finalists have been selected for the first Portland Rose Festival and Grand Floral Parade Canine Court.

The Rose Festival announced last month that the Spirit Mountain Casino Grand Floral Parade would feature a “canine grand marshal.”

Around 150 dogs and one cat were nominated to be on the court. Applicants ranged from service dogs to companion pets, puppies, seniors and special needs dogs.

The 20 finalists will participate in the Canine Coronation Ceremony on May 23. A panel of celebrity judges will choose the five members who will be part of the parade, including the canine grand marshal.

The public is invited to attend the event at the Heathman Hotel. It begins at 6 p.m. and tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door. VIP tickets are $25 and come with a goodie bag and reserved seating.
