A Note on the Upcoming Parade:
The 82nd Ave of Roses Parade Committee has recently been made aware of a discrepancy between our entry process and Rose Festival policy. As an official Rose Festival-sanctioned event, we will no longer allow electioneering at the parade.
As always, we look forward to seeing all our neighbors and their families at the Parade this Saturday, April 29 from 9:30 to noon. Every year, we recognize the diversity and resiliency of this unique, creative and passionate district. The parade is our opportunity to come together to celebrate our neighborhood.
The 82nd Avenue community is made up of all kinds of people. We have different beliefs and different family structures. We come from all over the world, but we all call 82nd Avenue our home. We stand together against harassment and discrimination today, at the parade on Saturday, and every day.
