History of Beaverton’s Celebration Parade

The Beaverton Celebration Parade began in 1957 and has grown into a community tradition with more than 100 festive entries from marching bands and colorful floats to civic and cultural organizations.   Each year, the Service to Beaverton Award winners are honored as celebrity guests in the parade along with local elected officials and the featured grand marshal.
