Pre-Float Paddlers' Parade

THE BIG FLOAT is an opportunity for the people of Portland to partake in a public display of affection for the Willamette River. It's appropriate that the event will begin with a “Paddlers' Parade" of floaters. In fact, there are two parades.  


The first wave parade will begin around 1:30 p.m - led by the Last Regiment of Syncopated Drummers and the Mysti Krewe of Nimbus. 


The second wave parade will start around 3:00 p.m. - led by Bloco Alegria. 


Both parades will start at the Tom McCall Bowl - west bank of the river just south of Hawthorne Bridge.


Onsite registration begins at 11:00 a.m.
