PORTLAND Ore. (KPTV) - The nations oldest and largest children’s parade returned to Portland on Wednesday beginning at Sandy Boulevard and Northeast 52nd Avenue.

The audience saw an appearance from Nintendo’s famous plumber brothers as the parade’s Grand Marshals and for those attending in person, an all new competition has been introduced.

This year Fred Meyer invited families to compete for the Family Fun Award, offering a wagonload of prizes and a Fred Meyer Gift Card to the winner.

Before the parade children visited the Decoration Station presented by Visit Seaside Oregon to embellish their entries with flowers, ribbons and crafts.
