UO Named Grand Marshal of the Portland Rose Parade

Yesterday the Oregon Ducks football team was named as the Grand Marshal of the 2011 Grand Floral Parade for this year’s Portland Rose Festival. Dandelions created 2 large bouquets of roses (1 yellow, 1 red) to present to UO President Richard Lariviere and the Oregon Duck mascot as the announcement was made by Rose Festival Board members.

“Both our organizations have been working for a hundred years to bring positive recognition to Oregon,” 2011 Portland Rose Festival Foundation President Sue Bunday said. There will even be a special University of Oregon section of seating at the parade June 11.

Congratulations to our DUCKS!!!
