Starlight Parade

Saturday, June 2, 2018

A Twinkling, Summer Night Downtown

One of our most popular events, the Portland General Electric/SOLVE Starlight Parade offers funky, eclectic fun for everyone. From traditional marching bands and flood-lit floats, to glow-in-the-dark umbrellas and unique hand-built entries, you’ll see the best of Portland’s diverse community groups (and surrounding Northwest region) together in one whimsical pageant. 2018 makes for an exciting Starlight Parade as it celebrates more than 40 years in the city of Portland!

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, and is also broadcast live from 9:00 – 11:00 p.m. on FOX 12. Don’t miss the fun of one of the Rose Festival’s best and brightest traditions!

The Portland General Electric/SOLVE Starlight Parade will begin at 8:30 p.m. on June 2, 2018.

Lake Oswego 4th of July Celebration

What kid doesn’t love a parade? Apparently none in Lake Oswego as it seems every child under the age of 10 is either walking down A Avenue or cheering those on who are. Parade begins at 10:00 a.m. and finishes at Millennium Plaza Park with a Star Spangled Celebration…and pie eating contest at 12:00 noon. Things wrap up at 1:30.

The Last Regiment brings a Tsunami of sound to Lake Oswego!

29th Annual Three Course Challenge

Saturday, September 22, 2018

The 3-Course Challenge features three distinct courses with varying degrees of difficulty: easy, moderate, and difficult. Each of the races are run on grass, dirt, sand roads and trails; no pavement, though there is a little mud. Okay, more than a little. A giant mud hole, nicknamed "Clear Lake" is the highlight of the course for most of the runners. The mud on their faces, splashed across their competitor's number, and coating their running shoes is like battle scars at the end of the race, symbol of victory, proof of their conquering the quest! The Last Regiment drums the sound of victory!
