Traveling Float

The Royal Rosarian Foundation provides major funding for the Rosarians’ Traveling Float, which participates in many Northwest festival parades each summer to promote the Portland Rose Festival and demonstrate good will from the City of Portland.  Volunteers reconstruct the float every year with a new design.
