UO at the Grand Floral Parade

Oregon pride was on full display on Saturday, June 7, when UO students, alumni, staff, and the Duck marched in Portland's Grand Floral Parade. For the fourth year, the University of Oregon sponsored the "We Are Oregon" section, which included the UO’s Duck Truck and cheerleaders as well as Miss Rodeo Oregon.

About 500,000 spectators lined the 4.2-mile parade route, taking in 14 all-floral floats, 17 marching bands, 19 equestrian units, vintage cars, and numerous marching groups.
