IBEW LU 48 – Grand Floral Parade Team

2024 IBEW Local 48 Grand Floral Parade Morning of June 8th

We will be participating in the Grand Floral Parade on June 8th . The Grand Floral Parade will consist of our team of 50-100 Rosie Riveters escorting a group of WW2 Riveters riding in jeeps provided by the Portland Rose Festival Foundation. Every member of our team will be dressed as Rosie the Riveter.

Many will be performing a simple rehearsed routine while others wave to the crowd in the middle of the formation. Members will need to show up to one or two rehearsals. Rehearsals are planned to be held at the Hall and Aloha Grange that might be available by Zoom. Dates will be sent out via text. Last year looked like this: Sunday, May 21 at 10 am. Wednesday, May 31, 7 pm, and Tuesday, June 6, 7 pm.

The routine will also be video taped and shared to practice. Routine will be reviewed taught and rehearsed on the morning of the Parade too.
