This 1935 aerial photo shows Navy ships arriving at the Portland
waterfront for the Rose Festival.

The City of Portland has been a favorite port of call for visiting Navy ships
since the beginning of the Rose Festival in 1907.

A total of ten ships from the U.S. Navy, the Royal Canadian Navy and the
U.S. Coast Guard are scheduled to arrive in Portland this week. The fleet
should begin departing on Monday morning, June 13.

IT’S PORTLAND ROSE FESTIVAL TIME !

rf

The idea for the Rose Festival in Portland, Oregon was presented to the
public in a speech by Mayor Harry Lane at the end of the Lewis and Clark
Centennial Exposition
in 1905. The first festival occurred in 1907.

One of our most popular events during Rose Festival time in Portland is the
Starlight Parade the offers fun for everyone. From traditional marching bands
and flood-lit floats. This years pageant will be celebrating 40 years in the city
of Portland. 


Harry Lane (1855-1917)

Lane was elected mayor of Portland in 1905
and again in 1907. He appointed Lola G.
Baldwin
as the first policewoman in the
nation.
