Video Time: 1986 Portland Rose Festival Grand Floral Parade

Here’s footage from Centennial marching in the Grand Floral Parade in 1986, with bonus coverage of the Rockwood Parade, featuring some great close-ups of some of us–possibly you! (Also features a pretty rad 1980s police car.)

Also, remember tickets are now for sale (and on sale, at $10 off for a limited time!) for the June 9th & 10th reunion. Get yours today, and tell your friends from your marching band days!

Video Time: 1985 Grand Floral Parade. Are You In There?

We have been collecting videos of many marching events over the years, including several Grand Floral Parades. Here is the Centennial High School Awesome Eagle Showband marching in the Portland Rose Festival Grand Floral Parade in 1985. If you were there, can you spot yourself or someone you know “on TV”?

While we have you here, we want to make sure you know tickets are now available on this site for the June 9-10, 2023 marching band reunion, and are $10 off through April 17!
