We had an incredible time serving at the Portland Starlight Parade. The Starlight Parade continues a longtime festival tradition from the early 1900s, when illuminated floats built on electric trolley cars made their way through the city on trolley tracks. Today, participants light up the night with approximately 100 illuminated entries along a 2.25-mile route. The parade draws more than 325,000 spectators to downtown Portland, Oregon.
Our team served alongside the parade marshals to keep the parade route safe and flowing evenly. We also passed out sidewalk chalk for the kids before the parade started. It was a total blast! We love our community and want to serve because people matter.
