PORTLAND, Ore. (KPTV) - After a three-year absence, a popular parade will return to southeast Portland this weekend.
The 82nd Avenue of Roses Parade is an event that started in 2007 but it hasn’t been held since 2019 due to the pandemic.
The event is designed to showcase one of Portland’s most diverse areas and it will feature marching bands, drummers, horses, and a number of local organizations.
The parade will begin at Eastport Plaza on Saturday at 9:30 a.m. This year’s grand marshal is a familiar face: FOX 12′s Joe Vithayathil!
