On Saturday, September 6, 2014 the City of Beaverton celebrated it's 57th annual Beaverton Celebration Parade with over 7500 parade day goers enjoying a day of festive floats, marching bands, community groups, local businesses and more!  The day started with the 4th annual 5K Fun Run benefitting the Beaverton Police Activities League.  We welcomed out furry four legged friends during the first annual Pooch Parade followed by the celebration parade.
