Nick was proud to march with Marc Jolin and our partners from JOIN in the 7th annual 82 Avenue of the Roses Parade on Saturday.
The annual neighborhood parade, one of a number of community events held throughout the day, celebrates the growing and vibrant East Portland community. Dozens of community partners, bands, and other groups were featured in the parade, one of the first events to informally kick off the Portland Rose Festival, which begins May 19.
The parade began at Eastport Plaza, 82nd and Holgate, and made its way to 82nd and Yamhill, wrapping up at Portland Community College’s southeast campus. Council members Charlie Hales, Amanda Fritz, and Steve Novick also marched.
