We had fantastic seats for the parade. We watched the parade in the Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
The picture below is the very first entry in the parade. We were seated across the stadium so we got to see the parade first.
We were inside so it didn’t matter if it rained.
Nothing better than watching and hearing a Marine marching band. These guys were very, very good.
Hubby and I enjoyed this entry very much. Loved the music and the routine.
This was a most enjoyable parade. There were 98 entries in this parade so it took quite a while.

Hope Seymour and Element were well behaved during it
They were traveling to your house when we were in Portland. 🙂
Great performances. I love a good marching band.
The Marines do it up right. Precision. 🙂
I had no idea you could watch the parade from inside. That's a great idea!
In Portland it rains a lot. You had better have an inside venue. 🙂
Looks like a great parade. Glad you enjoyed it.
We did, it was dry, comfortable and an excellent parade. 🙂
I've never seen a parade inside. Very cool!
My first time too. 🙂
That does look like a great parade. That must have been nice to have it inside so you could sit down and watch. Sandee, you and Zane have a great day.
It was Marg. There were lots of folks on lawn chairs watching the parade on the parade route. Some spent the night in tents. Amazing. 🙂
An amazing parade. Those girls from Taiwan were so beautiful and talented.
Have a beautiful Tuesday Sandee & Zane. See ya.
They were most beautiful Paul. One of my favorite entries. 🙂
So so lovely!

It was indeed. 🙂
That sounds like a great parade.
The Rose Parade in California is bigger, and this one is second. In the world. 🙂

Most enjoyable Caren. 🙂
I have seen many a Rose Festival Parade, BUT never from inside the Coliseum! Wow! Hope you are all over your cold! xoxo
Not yet Kathe. This is my worst day so far. Zane isn't even well yet. It's a bugger. 🙂
I've never seen one, but it sounds wonderful. Thanks for the virtual experience.
It was. What a great group of entries this year. 🙂
Marine marching parade and Taiwan damsels dance are superb.
Have a great day!
They were too my friend. Many great entries, but these were hubby and my favorites. 🙂
Sounded brilliant loved the photos and vid $-)
Have a tantalisinglytastic Tuesday Sandee 😕
It was an enjoyable event Steve. 🙂
Great parade with great performance. Enjoyed your videos.
Thank you Nancy. It was very enjoyable. 🙂
Good move, planning for rain in Oregon.
It rained a lot while we were there too. It comes and then it's gone. 🙂
Loved the video. I'm short so watching a parade from the street is not something I will ever do again.
I'm old and if I have to sit on the street you won't find me there. This was perfect. 🙂
Oh wow! That looks like fun! I should go sometime!
You should, it's most wonderful. 🙂
These entries were fabulous Linda. 🙂
We love a good parade down here!
These folks worked hard to entertain us. They were all awesome. 🙂
Looks like you had great seats.
We did Alex, we did. 🙂
I love watching marching band!!! I remember in our hometown during fiestas we have marching bands too and there are lovely girls in front we call them bastoneras (majorettes). I don't see them nowadays.
This was a most delightful day. 🙂
Interesting that the parade comes into the stadium like that.
It rains a lot in Oregon. It rained a lot while we were there. 🙂
Wow that is fantastic! I am so glad you guys had such a great time on your vacation. I bet it was cool and lovely. Cool is my new favorite word BTW. I love marching bands too, always tear up when I watch them.
I tear up too. The Marines were most impressive. 🙂
