TBF Parade and Float Route
For 2013, based on popular demand the parade route will be shortened. We will start the parade on the westside at the Tom McCall Bowl (also the take out) and will march south on the west bank Esplanade to the Marquam Bridge Beach, being careful to be respectful of other users of the Esplanade.
We will launch at the Marquam Bridge beach, then voyage downstream to the Tom McCall Bowl, where river revelers will be regaled by three bands on a floating barge. Portland's first downtown beach party!
