Yes it finally happened! I love roses (and I keep telling that to Daniel but somehow he’s not getting the hint) so I took my husband along. It was with the vain hope that perhaps he would then realize just how beautiful these flowers were, how stunning I am and how incredible the two would look together. Not sure it worked though as I still haven’t gotten any roses from him.
Anyway, the Grand Floral Parade that takes place every year in our city is the main attraction of the annual civic pride celebration. You can tell the night before that something beautifully spectacular is about to happen as people actually camp out from Eastside through downtown overnight to get the best spot.
Along with roses visitors on to the festival that took place on June 11 were able to enjoy fantastic marching bands, horses, colorful floats and more. The parade started at Memorial Coliseum (of course in the obvious place of the Rose Quarter) and then made its way downtown through Burnside Bridge. Just look at the amazing photos from the event!
So for any guys reading this, go today and get your loved one some roses. And if anyone sees Daniel hanging around, a quick reminder that orange roses are my favorite flowers wouldn’t go amiss!
