BEAVERTON, Ore. – Get ready for Beaverton’s 62nd Annual Celebration Parade on Saturday, September 7 at 10 a.m. This event celebrates Beaverton’s welcoming, vibrant and diverse community, and features festive floats, marching bands, local celebrities and more. The city invites local non-profits, businesses and community groups to participate!
This year’s theme, Superheroes Walk Among Us, encourages Beaverton to recognize existing heroes and become heroes themselves by taking action in our community. The city encourages participants to get creative with this theme. Organizations can dress as their favorite superheroes from movies or comics, create a new superhero to represent their organization, or highlight one of the heroes in our community that’s gone above and beyond.
Participants can also enter for one of the parade awards including Best Drill Team/Dance Team, Best Automobile, Best Use of Theme (commercial), Best Use of Theme (non-commercial), Best Band and Best Overall.
Because of the popularity of the Beaverton Celebration Parade, entries will be limited and must be received by Friday, July 26 at 5 p.m. There is no cost to participate. More than 100 entries participate each year.
